Garbage and Trash Privacy

California v. Greenwood, 486 U.S. 35; 108 S. Ct. 1625; 100 L. Ed. 2d 30; 1988 U.S. LEXIS 2279; 56 U.S.L.W. 4409
Because society did not accept as reasonable an expectation of privacy in trash left for collection in an area accessible to the public, warrantless searches and seizures of the trash were proper.
