[greenyes] scavenging
Is scavenging from recycling bins/carts a problem in your jurisdiction? Is 
it illegal?  What do you do to prevent scavenging?  Are the police 

While I don't think scavenging is any more of a problem in Long Beach than 
in other similar cities, it is an annoyance and a source of frustration to 
residents.  I encourage people to report scavenging to the police, 
residents report to me that they don't want to bother the police, or the 
police don't do anything about it.  "The police have more important things 
to worry about."  What happens in your town?
