We have the same situation here Steve. In the early hours on garbage day you will see the folks with shopping carts going along and sorting through the recycling boxes and bags. Along with the local black bears checking out the green/organic boxes

We are actually not suppose to put in the recycling system refundable items, we are suppose to return them for refund ourselves. So no laws against another party picking them out of your recycling bin on the street or if there are, I am unaware of them and they are not enforced in anyway.

It not a big concern as at the end of the day the item is being recycled and someone in need is getting the benefit from it & its not going to a landfill which is what the whole system is about.

Bigger concern is the people that you see going through the paper recycling bags. Those are the folks who are up to no good. People need to shrewd any mail with their Social Security and/or detailed banking info on it before putting it into the recycling bag/box.

No doubt, I had a great time visiting your beautiful neck of the woods.

I think the key difference is that once I put something in my bin I know that no other human will ever have to touch it. The truck tips the bin into the truck, the truck dumps into a handling area where bulldozers move the trash into piles to be buried.

As compared to the system in BC, I don't really have to worry about the guy picking up the bin and looking through my recyclables. I think that is a key consideration when discussing human waste in the trash: will there be any human interaction with the waste.
