    Default Using Recycling at Apartment Complex During Covid-19 [Wa]

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Washington.

    My question is regarding the legality/consequences of an individual driving into an apartment complex, of which they do not reside, and using the recycling bin. Note, this event is hypotheticized to be during COVID19.

    Assume the license plate of the recycler were to be know, are there legal grounds to punish?

    Knowing the license plate alone isn't sufficient to prosecute anything. If there is evidence that person did this it might be prosecutable as trespassing or littering depending on the facts.

    Assume they were able to find a box with a name on it, assume there is video of the hypothetical act.

    Is this homework? In any case, I doubt that the police would have much interest in pursuing a case like that, particularly right now.

    It has nothing to do with COVID-19. You trespassed on private property. You don't live in the complex. If your license plat was recorded then a complaint can be filed and an investigation could discover if the registered owner of the vehicle was in fact the driver.
