nice, im sure about in the UK but when garbage is set out for collection it is officially property of the garbage collection agency, so it might be stealing not sure though if it was just lying there than someone probably just wanted people to take it

no it's not. Thrown out things have no owner, and no privacy restrictions. If I wanted to, I could go through my neighbors garbage every Friday and take what I want. It's perfectly legal. It's all part of the search and seizure laws.

hmmm i know its not yours, but i also know its not nobody's. all i know is basicly anyone can take stuff out of it, i always just thought that was because the garbage companies didnt care, less space to fill

Nope, while it's sitting waiting for the company to pick up, it's anybodies. However, once it's in that big smelly truck, then it is their property.

Aww man, lucky you! I got a friend who gave me a Celeron 900MHz to test. It was found in the garbage, so I didn't waste my time. I traded my PIII 550MHZ and I eventually revived the sucker! Runs hot under load, and cool unde idle. Case is black, but is shown it's painted.
