I can not stress enough being on probation and not putting yourself in questionable situations, this is one of those times. Never take anything from the curb or anyplace(street) on and off the job for your personal use, this goes for Sanitation Workers off probation too. In the age of Video and “If you see something say something” world, it just ain’t worth it.
If in doubt of picking something to put in the bin to discard later in the garage, write it on ds350 and/or tell Supervisor or Garage Supervisor. CYA!
