Rules for dumpster diving?
I posted this also at the Garden Junk forum, but I thought I'd try here too. :)
I see some windows in a dumpster that someone took out of their house as they're renovating. I try to pick a few up here and there in hopes of making a greenhouse someday. Well, do you just go take them or should you knock on the door? I usually pick things up at a curbside or off the sidewalk since it's public property, but if a dumpster is sitting in the front yard and part of the sidewalk, is it proper to ask for permission to take the windows? I don't want to get shot over a window or two! LOL And you never know what kind of people they'll be.
