Once the weather starts getting warmer and people are drinking more soda and beer, you may also notice more people rummaging through the garbage in your neighborhood. Steve Esselstyn with Bend Police says this isn't illegal, it's actually pretty common for people to dig around for cans that they can recycle for money -

"Its perfectly legal for people to go through trash bins. They are not on private property if they're out on the street for collection. They are mostly looking for cans; the cans are a nickel a piece, and you can sometimes see at the recycling stations, quite a few of them, there's nothing illegal about it, but you do want to be careful."  Esselstyn says you need to make sure you don't have any personal information left in your trash because it could make it easier for people willing to look through your trash to steal your identity.
