  • Man arrested for recycling

    Here's another WTF Florida story for everyone. Worker at a landfill gets arrested for bringing recyclable material to be recycled instead of getting tossed in the landfill.

    Volusia Deputies: Landfill worker stole metals, sold them for cash

    yeah , common sense seems to be lacking in this story. Stealing trash to get it recycled? I think the landfill should hire workers to go thru trash and recycle if they can.

      The trash was property of the landfill, so they arrested him for theft. They had a man arrested for recycling something they were going to bury in the ground. 'Murica

        Theft is theft. Your title is obviously misleading.

          Yes it's theft, but look at the big picture. The guy stole trash destined to be buried in the ground. Instead, he took it to be recycled to be reused. Sure he made a couple bucks in the process but what did he really do? He saved our earth from being polluted, and got arrested for it.

            I agree...people should be happy that no additional trash will be in the landfield..

              In that same essence. Would you call the cops on someone going through your trash "recycling" papers with your credit card/bank statements?

              I mean there won't be additional paper in the land field

                That's your dumb ass fault for leaving your intact personal information wide open in the trash.

                  I see in no please that it says he was taking trash. He could have been taking stuff that belonged to the land fill.

                    Go to the link and the title across the top says this:

                    DeLand landfill worker accused of selling stolen supplies as scrap metal

                    Sounds like he was stealing their maintenance supplies like copper pipe and fittings.

                      i can see the property rights "logic". the man might have done what he did more "honestly" by getting prior permission.

                      but economically, what this man did was better than "violation of property rights" he committed.

                      upcycling (the independent, free market recycling of key materials that A. saves money in waste costs, and B. saves money by expending supplies of raw materials) is just one way we can add billions of dollars to our economy.

                      just to revive a really old thread cause I havent posted in ages lol.
