Hello, My boyfriend and I are getting really sick of strangers going through our trash all hours of the night. Some random guy was "handling" our apt building's trash cans and wheeling them from around the back of the building to the curb at midnight the night before trash day. The same guy who illegaly went through our personal belongings in our garage is the guy who is SUPPOSED to take our trash to the curb - this week it wasn't him and in previous weeks we've been awakened by strangers rummaging only through our bldgs' trash. I wanted my boyfriend to introduce these self-appointed garabage men to his US military training. He contended however that it is perfectly legal to go through people's trash. surely boyfriend is wrong?
