Gargabe picking:
"Once items have been placed out at the curb for municipal curbside collection, the items belong to the City. Residents are allowed to take items that have been placed out at the curb as long as these items are loose and no mess is made. Residents are not allowed to take any material that has been placed in a blue or black box. Furthermore, residents are not allowed to rummage through garbage cans or bags."
