    What is your opinion of Dumpster Diving?

    After watching this video http://documentaryheaven.com/dive/ I have come to have a different opinion of those who dumpster dive. Can dumpster divers help the community and in exchange the world?

    Messy and nasty. It is called trash for a reason and it is best left alone.

    I haven't seen the video but basically dumpster diving is digging in the trash which could be dangerous health-wise depending on the kind of trash.  I don't think the their contribution whatever that may be will offer much help to the world or the community.

    i've been there and done that quite a few times. i ran away from an abusive home when i was 13 and i used dumpsters to survive. it sucked but death was even worse.

    It's an invasion of privacy no matter how you look at it.  If I throw something in the garbage, I am not placing it in the public domain, no, I am throwing it away and away from prying eyes.  Digging through my garbage is a violation of my will, as I did not intend for the things in my trash to see the light of day, I intended for them to be removed from the world.

      You have an ethical argument there, but not a legal one. The government's position is that once you throw something into the garbage it's no longer yours. That position is where the police get the ability to rummage through the trash.
