Have you seen someone taking cans, bottles or newspapers from your recycling bin? That's called scavenging, and it's illegal in the SOCRRA communities.
How Does Recyclables Theft Affect Our Community?Revenue from the sale of recyclables collected by City contractors is used to offset the cost of collecting these materials. When recyclable materials are stolen, potential market revenue is lost and your fees for weekly recyclables collection may need to be increased. Theft also discourages residents from recycling, defeating the goals of the City's curbside recycling program.
