Dumping Trash As "Free"

When it comes to getting rid of unwanted household items, a tired-and-true solution is to put them out in front of your house with a “Free” sign (see last week’s post)–at least until garbage day–then get rid of it! But when you put it on someone else’s property, that’s considered dumping and it’s illegal.

Alfredo Estrada on 23rd Ave NE reports someone left a plastic bin on the corner of his property with various miscellaneous items and a waterlogged piece of paper taped to it saying “Free.” He said, “It is not very neighborly to leave trash at someone else’s house. I assume it must have been someone passing by.”
Please keep an eye out for this kind of dumping.
