My sole folks, most businesses would not mind you getting the scrap metal as long as you work safely and police the area when you're done. If your choice is to be nasty about it, you SHOULD sit in jail a while and get a healthy dose of community service picking up trash, say 500 hours.

I've seen dumpster diving as a way of life for years with some people, not just during these economically hard times. There's no need to be pigs about it though, if it's necessary to make ends meet by doing this, the least you can do is clean up after yourselves and not leave it to others to clean it up for you, no excuse for that at all.

How can you tell which garbage is from the dumpster and whats on the ground in the first place? CLEAN UP YOUR TOWN DEMING NEW MEXICO YOU CAN START CLEANING UP BY FIRING ALL THE DIRTY LAW ENFORCEMENT IN YOUR TOWN.

Also noticed this problem. I can tell when it is dumpster divers leaving garbage laying around in the alley. Our alley is always clean and kept up. I have also noticed more trash like plastic bags in the shrubbery which I think is due to the windy weather.

I have been told that people who live in Deming are responsible for keeping the trash picked up between their house and the steet even though the city owns the 25 ft strip by the street. Also we are to keep the weeds cut.
Everyone in our block does that but one family. There is trash every where and lots of silver nightshade which spreads everywhere and is poison.
This person is a Deming Policeman.
What gives????

He has a gun that says he can? Maybe it's because he carries a gun and hides behind a shield.

Consider how being a ''convicted dumpster diver'' would look on your back ground check for employment.....

old ironsides, yes, the cop broke the law and committed felonious assault under disability. In the future get their name, badge number and memorize their face, then, call the police on him. Your wife was your witness.
