I seriously never even knew people did this until today when a friend told me. At first I was kind of grossed out, but now it seems like the way to go.
When I used to work at a supermarket, all of our rubbish and stuff went into all the same dumpster, so are you guys all sifting through trash or do they have seperate bins? I wouldnt go through trash just for free food.

you can make money from bins from cellphones to.... and to buy for good shit and donations to good causes that help all of us.

this system throws out everything cause you can always dig a big hole in the ground for perpetuity. :roll: sigh.

speak up, stand up, be confident, have empathy and don't put up with any shit and survive.

I got real drunk out of a skip once but some people live by it and don't die, back to the start me thinks to see how etc etc etc or look it up.

I got a keyboard out of a skip, hip hop star it is then.

rich prix should waste less shit or I'm gonna waste them one day but it tends to be the uneducated who waste more that they can afoord, they've given up trying.

but its not that hard and a change will blow through.

oh and are you skinny cause of the drugs or lack of food, both I imagine.

I happen to like my job and I dont get treated like shit, so yes. I would never sift through trash for food. Sure, if they had bins of packaged goods, Id be up for that. But not trash.

... When does the packaged goods in the bin suddenly become trash?

Nobody's talking about salvaging foodscraps or anything.

Well thats exactly what I was trying to find out. If it was in the same bins as the gross garbage or if it was just packaged.

Its usually in the same bins as "gross garbage" (especially in CHCH, Countdown is the worst for that), sometimes they have bins just for produce or bread.

KB's bakery dumpsters are usually full of fresh bread, and waste is kept packaged in other rubbish bags in the dumpsters.

haha! I've never been 'diving myself but have eaten plenty of the stuff they find. It's usually alright. Mostly stuff from the bakery is good - households normally go through so much bread.
