Thinking about going skipping but is it illegal?

According to the law in England and Wales: “A person commits theft if he dishonestly appropriates property belonging to another with the intention of permanently depriving the other of it.”

Just because someone throws something away, does not mean they don’t own it. So if it can be proven that the property that was thrown away had a rightful owner, it would be illegal to take it.
