I have been taking my trash to the end of my driveway for nearly 4 months. At least once per week, when I awaken to grab the morning paper, the trash is gone. The person(s) stealing it leave(s) the can(s), but always seems to take the trash.

I came up with a genius plan to catch the culprits. Last week, after taking the trash to the end of the driveway, I took 4 NoDOZ pills so that I could stay awake long enough to catch the robbers red handed.

Around 6am, as I began to dose off, I heard a loud commotion outside. To my astonishment, the robbers were throwing MY trash into the back of a large vehicle which was similar to that of a school bus, but with an oval rear with a HUGE trunk. Due to my drowsiness, I wasn't able to get to the bandits before they made off with my goods.

If ANYONE can help, please let me know.

Once you set your trash out you indicate you don't want it anymore therefore anyone is welcome to it. I would be shredding any personal documents from now on! I've seen people taking mattresses set out for the trash. Talk about gross!

I must say, when I set my trash out, it is still technically on my property, and therefor still MINE! I hope these guys TRESPASS on my property and try to take MY things....they wont know what hit them! Anyone that would root through garbage is a sick individual. Do they think people throw money or valuable things away or something? Geez.....

You people are a disgrace. So people want your trash! It is not stealing! I don't do it but most of the things they take are metal which can be scrapped. It is better than in a land fill forever! You people should be ashamed of yourselfs, you are the reason society is messed up. You throw things away but still don't think anyone else should have or make money off of it.

Well said. For those that believe that their trash is still theirs after setting it out, contact your local PD. Once it's out, it's fair game.

To the Original Poster:

Um It's Rumpke a trash company. Better be alert they are also taking money from you. As you pay a bill for them to pick it up. LOL

Actually believe it or not some communities have a curb law that states once put out belongs to the company that picks it up. Seldom if ever enforced.

I mean if you put it out who cares. I am glad when I put things out and someone else finds a use for them.

Here in San Diego, the city bins say anything in the cans belongs to them. The recyclables is what they're after here.

I'm woken constantly by these raiders which drives me nuts and that money is used by the city for revenue like these damn potholes, clean our beaches etc.

I happily give to charity, but when you violate a municpal code, wake me up, and my taxes go up because the city could use the money, that's wrong.

People do throw away money and very valuable things such as bank statements, credit card numbers, private information of which you would never tell a stranger.

Well Krack your right, they do throw away stuff they shouldn't. I use a shredder or burn my stuff in my burn pit. I was a victim of Identity theft and it made my life hell for about a year. Turned out it was a relative. So they didn't get it from my trash. But I wonder how they like it up at Orient now. :)

I've been having the same problem with a truck driving throughout the neighborhood and rooting through everyones trash. and checked with local police. According to them the first four feet back from the road ways are public domain so trash is considered public property. So once you put trash out on curb it's free game til the sanitation service comes for it. If you get license plate numbers and report to police and if there is ever a robbery in the neighborhood they have the information to investigate and to add to a possible suspect list.

some comments are just dumb..if the first 4 feet back from the road ways are public domain , then i guess they can steal the trash cans you paid for too and there is nothing wrong with that, or better yet your mail box, i have no problem with ppl taking my trash unless they leave a big mess behind but i can also understand why ppl would be offended when strangers are digging through things they are throwing away as if it's any of their business what you've put in there. it's meant for the trash company not random strangers.especially when its like trash stalkers that do it every week.they sit and wait for you to put out your trash.

Ok. There is an illegal unit in the garage section of my house. The cretins who live there are Chinese, and they collect cans. It is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen. Our garage area is full of dirty plastic bags full of cans. They stink. They also fill their utility room, and also the yard. I don't have access to the yard or utility room. Anyway, the stuff stinks and the people are total trash. I finally called the health department. There are things like rats that go along with such an impressive garbage collection. Did I mention it stinks! The smells waft up to my living room, and from the utility to my hallway. Help me stop these people please. I live in San Francisco. Also, they make a bad name for normal Chinese people, whom I think would be absolutely aghast at these people. They are trash, just like the trash they collect. I started to take pictures of their trash collecting and trash collections to back up my potential accusations, only to learn that the only words that the old hag knows are, "Yes," "No," and "F--- you." Brilliant.
