Taking trash from a dumpster or dumpster diving in itself is not illegal. A United States Supreme Court ruling in 1988 (California vs. Greenwood) concluded that trash left outside a store is a part of the public domain. In other words, a store whether it intended to or not has ceded control of its garbage by placing it in a dumpster.We are not attorney’s check with your attorney for a professional legal opinion.

Al and Sandy
Al and Sandy were different.  They were better off  then most homeless in that they had a nice tent and a truck.  Neither had job skills and both were over 55.  Al was hard of hearing and could only get odd jobs. They couldn’t find an apartment they could afford.  So they lived in the desert south of Highway 60 near apache junction.They were unusual in that they accepted there way of life and helping others was important to them.  They were our main contact point for helping people in the desert.
