SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — San Francisco police say they’re going to start going after recycling pirates. Those are the people they claim (some residents concur) that are going through recycling bins that residents leave out for collection.
This is an issue that comes in waves and apparently the problem is having one of its on moments. It makes sense that when you put out your recyclables that someone is going to come out and collect them before the city does to make some cash on the deposits from bottles.
The issue is sometimes the people leave a mess and make too much noise for residents. Think of them as recycling poachers if you will and this is against the law, so the cops can go after them.
