Just to clarify a few points. Most municipalities have an ordinance that states the recyclables become property of the town once they are placed at the curb. Taking recycling off the curb is illegal. There is a value to it so it is theft.
The police in NJ are required to have a search warrant to go through your garbage. Other municipal officials such as your Recycling Coordinator, Sanitation or Property Maintenance Inspectors do NOT require a search warrant. That was a US Supreme Court decision from the 1980s.
In regards to the person who asked why you don't get paid for putting your recycling out to the curb, you do! The revenue the town generates is put back in the town budget to help offset the amount of taxes they need to generate for their budget. When the thieves take the recycling from the curb, they are stealing from the residents... literally!
Stealing is stealing. Would it make a difference if they were stealing shampoo instead of cardboard? Legally, no! It is theft of property.
