    Link: Dumpster Diver - Call Greg a garbage eater if you must but this college kid is actually pretty crafty. Greg the Dumpster Diver FTW.

    Yeah, I question the sanitation of dumpster-diving. He`s going to get that trash all smelly.

    you have to admit though, for being a dumpster diver he`s found some nice stuff, touch lamps are hard to come by at any cheap price. I wouldn`t trust his cooking though.

    Wow, what a throwback. My family used to do that when I was little. It`s not a bad way to get free stuff.

    Apart from rent you can pretty much be fully self-sufficient just by doing this a few hours a week and in Greg`s case he obviously manages to pay the rent too by selling stuff he finds. And how big is his carbon footprint? Big zero. Total legend, go Greg.

    Dumpster diving was also featured in The F Word. You can get a 3-course meal from the garbage.

    It saddens me that so many good things still in working conditions, even a still slightly stale food is just thrown away. We`re just too spoilt a society these days.

    good for him
    he gets free stuff, and the garbage men don`t have quite as much to collect.

    Yeah, you can get cool stuff in dumpsters, but I`d pass on the food.

    This has been documented by vice magazine. It`s a new trend where people eat discarded food. It looks great, but apparently it taste like, well, garbage. You could be almost as sufficient while saving the need to created new items by shopping in a thrift stire. They throw out the stuff no one buys anyways.

    Psh, just move to Maine. It`s pretty common for the dumps up here to have a little second-chance store, where people bring things that they`d normally just throw out, but that still works (or could work if you fixed it up a little). And you can take whatever you want for free.

    kappamu, are you sure he said "for"? the size of that kid, hes getting food from somewhere.

    there is nothign wrong with dumpster diving (except that its illegal to be rummaging through private property, if the trash is at the curb, its free-for-all). infact, i have 2 computers, a 36" tv and a projector all from the trash. but free section on craigslist or the local thrift store are much better. i just bought 3 suits (ralph lauren and Joseph A Bank) from goodwill for $30, and they look great.

    If I wanted to eat trash I would have become a bum. But I`ve found working TVs in the dumpster before.

    the food is perfectly fine if you get it out of a grocery store dumpster, since its only days after the sell by date, which is usually ages before the eat/best by date. btw ive alwals sorta wanted to do this really bad..

    How does he know the things he put in his mouth has not been urinated on or has been used as toilet paper?

    Then again... you could ask the same question about the food you purchase every day.

    ok, seriousely, if you go to duncan donuts and places like that, at the end of the day they throw ALL OF THE FOOD AWAY!!! even if there is nothing wrong with it. its the law! and there is nothing wrong with it. The same goes for grocery stores. Because its past the sell by date they have to throw it away. you cant tell me if you found a can of soup in the cup board that was a week past its date that you wouldnt eat it.. because ITS STILL GOOD!!!! people like this are smart... too bad im not XD
