I see people dumpster diving, is this legal?

Ordinance 64116 states, “(k) Scavenging in or from any refuse container is prohibited from dark to dawn and (l) scavenging in or from any container designated for recyclables is prohibited.”  Details of this ordinance can be found here.  This ordinance only applies to St. Louis City, so other municipalities will have their own ordinances.  Remember, if you see suspicious activity you can report it to the CSB (online or by phone 314-622-4800) or if it is an emergency call 911.
