I used to do quite a bit of dumpster diving around London, my job was pretty much to roam around in a van in all places day and night any way, so I
got a few good things, pulled 2 DVD players out once, fiddled with the first one discovered it was only the power cable that had a break in it -
didn't bother with the second, left it in the under stairs cupboard of the shared house for someone else to fiddle with.
Errrm felt a wee bit bad about the next one, it was a safe with a digital combo pad and also the key in the lock! Nothing in it, it needed my mate to
help me lift it into the van... He was a goody 2 shoes and would not help me, so for some reason I removed the key and threw it as far as I could!
Bit of a dick thing to do, but I was actually interested in the scrap value more than anything - nice looking safe really, solid, from the 1980's
I'd guess, - Also out with that same guy, he was driving this time tho, we found a home made monkey bike!! (Americans call them pit bikes I think)
- again goody 2 shoes moaned about taking it out of a skip, he reckoned that it would have been stolen and dumped? I pointed out there are 2 skips
here for one property, they are clearly gutting the place and throwing everything out (and literally there was the kitchen sink in there too lol)
Never gone dumpster diving for food though, I wouldn't rule it out though... Used to strike up conversations with the 'pros' at the old diving,
they say they eat really well from the stuff that is a day or 2 out of date, I can believe that if your careful what you will and won't eat.
