Except that those might be a profit source to the stores. They might just get paid for those recyclables. If the store doesn't, somebody sure does, so I think it's stealing to take recyclables. I think it's right to take only stuff that is destined for a landfill. That's why another name for DD is "urban wastestream recycling."

I agree, I'm not in the business of collecting other people's recyclables for my own profit. But if coverless books and magazines are in the recyclable bin, is that OK (assuming I want to read said book)?
