Ask HPD: Trash Digging


Q. "Is it illegal to dig through another person's trash?"

A. Yes it is illegal to remove or go through anyone's trash for recyclables or anything else, if it has been placed on the curbside for collection. Only the owner of the trash or a licensed collector is allowed to remove and collect the refuse. Violators can face a fine of up to $500.
