It's Not Illegal Dumping If It's At The Recycling Center, Right?

I've seen piles of non-recyclables left next to the trash at the recycling center, but this takes the cake. Someone left what looks to be most of a home or office at the recycling center on N. Quincy between Wilson and Glebe: It wouldn't be nearly so comical if it wasn't so carefully constructed. I can almost picture the late great Johnnie Cochran making his Chewbacca Defense-style closing argument now:
Note that the items on the right are meticulously leaned up against the trash can -- because as everyone knows, it's not illegal dumping if it's in contact with the trash can. That giant chair is no different than the gum wrapper at the bottom of the can!

And then since everything else is in physical contact with the first items in a chain, everything counts as trash! Clearly not illegal dumping! Am I right, people? Who's with me? Here, look at the monkey. Look at the silly monkey!
