Default Some people will steal anything!!!

Today my dh went to one of the big box stores. Since he was out, he took a large garbage bag with our recycle "trash" and threw it into the back of his truck. When he came out of the store, it was gone!!!I always make sure nothing with our name or address is in the recycle stuff so I am not worried in that regard. My husband called the sheriffs' office when he got home, just in case they dump it somewhere. I swear, we have had a lot of laughs about it. I hope they enjoy going through our trash!!!!

​Ain't that the truth! Maybe they thought it had aluminum cans inside?

Yes, it's just a matter of grab what you can and dump if it's not valuable. Good idea to notify the police. My friend how owned a printing company had a truck stolen. The thieves dumped all the promotional items with the company's info and my friend was cited for it.

Years ago my parents rented a farm and kept finding garbage dumped in the ditches. They cleaned it up every time because it's the right thing to do, then they discovered a newspaper with a name label on it. It was the farm owner.

My dh just discovered that someone stole the rubber caps off of our metal fence posts. They have sharp tops and I have horses, and we have them there so they don't hurt themselves. They left the last three closest to the house. Why???

Are you familiar with the story about the New York City garbage strike? It seems one clever fellow would put his garbage in a box, gift wrap it, and leave it in his car with the window down. Problem solved.

Except the thief probably dumped it for someone else to clean up.

Funniest story I ever heard about stolen trash. Someone had accidentally ran over a cat and they didn't want to leave it there on the road so somehow the put it in a box marked wedding dress and that was stolen.
