That guy that rides the bike? Or sometimes that lil grey car with the bike attachemnt? Yea he literally goes THROUGH EVERY SINGLE PERSONS GARBAGE IN TOWN, he lives at Maple St and dumpster dives there as well he leaves out at the break of dawn to go snooping and collecting your trash. Threaten him to go away next time.

ok...well why exactly do you think she is going to have a heartattack, continue to run him off or threaten to have him arrested for trespassing

The Supreme Court Case California v. Greenwood has established that by discarding possessions, private citizens of the US relinquish their rights to the property, and have no common law expectation of privacy regarding them...so if there is something that you may not want people to find, you better find another way to dispose of it. But it is creepy as hell to see some old fool diving through your trash.

Because she's not in good health and is stressing. Someones going to stop this. I'd rather just load it and take it to the dump but I guess I will raise hell until he stops or gets stopped or next week he wont have a pleasant day

Even so THIS DOES NOT GIVE THEM THE RIGHT TO TRESPASS AND MEDDLE through YOUR trash on YOUR property,tell him to go to the freaking CITY DUMP !

About the only way you can keep them out and it sounds redicoulous is by putting a NO TRESPASSING sign on your garbage can..crazy I know, but they will have no right to rummage.

As previously stated, once you discard and take your trash to the curb, there is nothing you can do. When you move your trash to the curb, you are saying you don't want this any longer. Therefore, the trash becomes public property. He is not trespassing. The county/city owns the property next to the road.

I know you may disagree. But this very thing has been to the Supreme Court and discarded garbage is public domain. So before you get yourself into trouble by confronting this man, just understand the law is more on his side than yours

I understand but someone in the know told me there was a city ordinance against this but I don't know and the police said they were going to stop him. We will see. Believe me I wont do anything to get in trouble. Point taken tho. And thanks. If it was me I'd bypass the drama. Unfortunately its not all my choice. But thank u
