Recycling theft: PA enforcement policy?
Original post made by Pillaged Recycler on Apr 18, 2007
Today is garbage/recycling day in my neighborhood.
I used to see the occasional recycling thief out and about early in the morning. Today I saw two active on my street at the same time and a third came by later. Two of them were using van-sized vehicles. And I wasn't specifically "on the lookout", so there could have been more.
This concerns me for two reasons:
(1) The city recycling program is being shorted revenues fromthe materials being put out. I assume this causes an increase in collection fees.
(2) People become used to random folks pawing through recycling/garbage materials, allowing identity theft perpetrators free rein without causing alarm.
Is this illegal? Does PA have an enforcement policy with
regards to this activity? Who do I call? Is this as rampant in other neighborhoods?
