It would be wise to have a curfew for the entire county. I can only imagine the amount of punks out lurking for their next score. People have already lost so much it would be despicable for scum to kick people already down. But we all know the trash of the valley have no compassion for anyone! I've been watching kids play on destroyed bridges and blocked off roads like everything is a joke! God forbid these kids have morals and get out and help!!!

Well first of if its out on the curb it public property and fair game. And some ppl may be smart enough to realize that all the metal your throwing away is worth something. And something is better than nothing. Ever hear one mans trash in anothers treasure. Food for thought. it doesnt matter if there has been a flood they are out their scrapping regardless of any little disaster.

Garbage picking is against the law. Check the Herkimer PD's Facebook page. They have some good posts about it. They are even stopping people who are doing it.

Thats because herkimer thinks their king shit. If someone was to get arrested for it and fight against it. They would win federal and state laws trump village laws. federal and state laws state that when something is put to the.curb it becomes PUBLIC property. just an fyi for you all knowing.

Trash becomes public property when the person places the trash on the curb, removing it from their custody and placing it in the public domain: 

"Since respondents voluntarily left their trash for collection in an area particularly suited for public inspection, their claimed expectation of privacy in the inculpatory items they discarded was not objectively reasonable. It is common knowledge that plastic garbage bags left along a public street are readily accessible to animals, children, scavengers, snoops, and other members of the public. Moreover, respondents placed their refuse at the curb for the express purpose of conveying it to a third party, the trash collector, who might himself have sorted through it or permitted others, such as the police, to do so. The police cannot reasonably be expected to avert their eyes from evidence of criminal activity that could have been observed by any member of the public."

The U. S. Supreme Court ruled on this question in CALIFORNIA v. GREENWOOD, 486 U.S. 35 (1988). 

This question has been asked again and again in State courts since 1988, and I'm not aware of (and can't find) any rulings that do not follow the common-sense rule that once trash is placed in the public domain there is no expectation of privacy.

That is just 1 example must I go on. So I really hope herkimer knows that they can risk being in violation of a federal law. And in turn will have to pay a fine and compensation for wrongfully arrested. So for those of you who have been arrested lawyer up

Great info! I heard about that ruling awhile back. Hey who cares if scrappers pick up broken washing machines etc. If they are stupid enough to make a mess while doing it, then the police can step in. People are getting more hyped up about theses scrappers then the multiple pedophiles that are roaming the streets! So tired of this petty BULLSHIT.
