Do any cities have ordinances specifically about "dumpster diving?"

Do you have an ordinance that prohibits persons from retrieving materials out of trash containers (dumpster diving)? Some cities treat this as trespassing - do any cities have ordinances that are more specific to this activity?

I am not aware of anyone with such an ordinance. Not sure who would care if someone retrieved aluminum cans or other recyclable items from the trash. Is there a specific issue?
