Trash Dumpster

trash dumpster
What can I do about my trash being gone through?

I live in an apartment and I have been noticing people going through my trash dumpster all of the time. This is 24/7 and at least 6 times a day.

What can be done about this? Is this legal? Can/should the trash dumpster be locked? My land lord says it is good because people can dump large items and they always get picked up quickly for free. I say it is annoying.


There’s not really anything to be done unless your landlord puts a lock on it. Once you throw something away, you loose your privacy/ownership claim on it. That’s why the police can look through your garbage once you’ve put it outside without a search warrant. Just make sure you don’t throw anything away with personal information on it.
