Diver's Etiquette

  • Don't leave a mess. Leave the dumpster in no worse condition (or perhaps even better?) than you found it.
  • Avoid making noise - it can wake neighbors up (or attract store employees) and make them call the police.
  • Avoid ripping trash bags - try to untie them if possible, and then tie them back.
  • Take only what you can use, and leave the rest for someone else.
  • Even though some dumpster divers chose to break into locked dumpsters by force, it is recommended to look for those dumpsters which are not locked.
  • If there are other dumpster divers around (often happens at some food markets)
    • Don't take more than you are possibly going to use
    • If you already have too much of something, offer it to other people
    • Leave a trace if you found a whole pile of something hidden away so that others can find the stuff you're not going to take

So, I am a diver... What do I need to have?

Sometimes, often or even always you will need:

  • a small flashlight (headlamp is the best)
  • something to pull the stuff to you, some kind of pole with a hook at the end (a hoe maybe?)
  • a stepping stool (can help you reach over the top)
  • bags (backpacks, trash bags, plastic bags, etc.)
  • wet wipes and/or water bottle to clean up with
  • a basic First Aid Kit in case you hurt yourself.
