Monday night finds

Filed under: Uncategorized — urbandumpsterdiver @ 11:33 pm

Tonight didn’t find a lot. A bag of chips (unopened), 1 bag of cookies, 1 bag of fig newtons and 2 loaves of bread (new).

What I did find tonight in the dumpster and happens often is what really upsets me. 5 containers of coffee thrown in the trash. Not thrown out, but the contents emptied and THEN thrown out in the trash. It takes more effort to open each and every container and throw it in the trash rather than dump the containers in the trash.

Someone could have used that coffee. This is the part of dumpster diving that really bothers me. Why the waste? Why can’t these store owners donate that to a soup kitchen or battered women’s shelter. That type of behavior is mean spirited and hateful. With so many Americans out of work, couldn’t this have been done differently?



  1. Is it possible that coffee was used as cover scent for drugs? Something to throw off the search dogs?

  2. VERY possible, I did not think of that. However I do think the employees at this particular store are either lazy or just plain mean. Someone could have used that coffee.
