There should be a city ordinance
We are no longer able to put our trash out more than a few hours before disposal because there are swarms of people in trucks that go around and "steal" our trash. They may find a perceived value in our trash, but it's our trash and we don't want it viewed, rummaged or taken by strangers.
Most major cities consider this a crime.
Two times in the past 2 years we have purchased new appliances and put our old, but good, appliances curbside and promised them to other people. This was not on trash day. Both times our appliances were stolen off our lawn in the day time by unknown people in trucks before we could see them. There was no indication given either time that we were offering our property to anyone.
If we knew who stole our used appliances we would have them prosecuted for theft, but they drive by, load up, and they are gone within 15 minutes.
I do not want to have to monitor my trash cans. I do not want strangers or neighbors rummaging through my cans on trash day and taking my property. It is still my property, even in the trash can. I have the right to dictate that I want my property to go in a landfill.
Most of the license plates are from Franklin County.
How about some action on this issue by city hall? Please. It should be a crime.
