Over the past couple of months, we've had one industrious woman who goes around and picks through the neighborhood's recycling, poaching any bottles she may find. Now, I get that she may be down and out, but it bothers me that she's picking through my stuff. Furthermore, the garbage company making money off of recyclables keeps the rate low, so over time the impact of her poaching bottles could cost me money.
Now, I've asked her politely to stop picking through my recycling bin. I've told her forcefully to stop, and I've written down her license plate along with a basic description of her and her vehicle. I really don't want to file a police report, but it's annoying to me, and I shouldn't have to adjust my schedule and bring the trash out in the morning because she can't respect my property.
I'm pretty sure I'm overreacting, but I can't be the only person on here who would be angry about something like this.
