City Approves Scavenging Ordinance

According to this morning's Bee:
By a 6-3 vote, the [Sacramento city] council made it illegal to dig through any container in front of your home – garbage, yard waste or recycling. It had previously been illegal to go through recycling bins only. In discussions, opponents ... focused on the ban on recycling scavenging, saying it harms those who exchange bottles and cans for food and clothing money. Supporters cited identity theft and spilled waste issues. Opposed were council members Rob Fong, Kevin McCarty and Bonnie Pannell.
