Throughout a typical day you probably walk or drive past far more dumpsters than you would
assume. More than likely, some of the trash that you contribute to trash cans throughout the day
will head to a dumpster somewhere.

realize how to abide by dumpster laws, simply because they do not realize what laws they are
breaking when they use dumpsters in their area.

It is usually illegal to use a dumpster that is on private property. If you do not get permission
from the owner of the dumpster and you are found using the dumpster, in any manner, the owner
of the dumpster can press charges against you for using the dumpster.

You may not realize that many private
dumpsters are protected by security
cameras. If the owner has had problems
with unauthorized use of their dumpster,
they may install a camera to ensure they can
catch people that are using their dumpster
without permission.

There may be some public dumpsters in
your city that you can use without having to
get permission. If you find a dumpster and
it is not clearly marked as a public
dumpster, then you should wait to talk to a
local authority to find out if it is a dumpster you can or cannot use.

If you know that you are going to need a dumpster for an extended amount of time, it may be

dumpster, to ensure dumpsters do not take permanent residence without special permits.

something questionable.
