Question by Elizabeth L: Anyone know the laws for or against dumpster diving in hillsborough county florida?
My husband and I are having a disagreement about the local laws regarding dumpster diving.
Does anyone happen to know any of the state or local laws for dumpster diving in Florida or Hillsborough County?
I just wanted to go through a grocery stores dumpster and its not locked.

The dumpster is the property of the waste management company, and they will not allow you in it for liability reasons. If they do allow you, and you get hurt, it is their responsibility. They will not take that chance.

A lock has nothing to do with it. That is no different than leaving your car, or your door at home unlocked. That does not automatically give anyone permission to enter.

    it all depends on your local by laws. However, you could always approach the store owner and request permission to scavenge his bin.

    why don’t you just ask the grocery store manager for whatever they were going to throw out
