I'm not questioning the right to take the trash. I'm well aware of the abandonment of trash laws. What I'm questioning in the legality of the police not collecting it themselves but having the trash guys do it for them. It was my understand that evidence of any kind had to be collected and processed by the police. Or that they at least had to be present when it was taken from my trash bin.
Your attorney can try and challenge the collection of the evidence as they see fit. I suspect, however, that if the police did it that way that they had the people collect it and take it to them rather than allow it to be co-mingled with other trash.

If you're charged with a crime and all you have is a Hail Mary to try and get the probable cause for the search warrant quashed, then you'd better be ready for some jail time.
