wow….I cannot understand how it is stealing if you throw it away? why not recycle things that somebody else does not use…??I I think that is so wrong he was charged with criminal theft. I cannot believe anybody would actually press charges. “Sorry officer but I wanted this to be burned or sit in a landfill insead of being reused by somebody, so arrest this horrible criminal.”
Absolutely it’s stealing. Also, if they get injured on the property, or in the dumpster, even though they are not there by invitation, they have the option of suing the property owner.
Interesting that you brought that up. Personally, I’ve never thought of it as stealing, because someone put it in the dumpster.
However, the police thought differently when he saw my adult sontake some wood scrapsfrom a dumpster (he was making a project with his little brothers). He was charged with criminal theft!
