Tonight’s dumpster haul!
It doesn’t seem like a lot, but I know I can stretch this to make at least 25 meals/a little over a week’s worth of food (not including things I have in my pantry already….also still have 20some dumpster salvaged cantaloupes in the fridge).
The amount of food…
Followers, can anyone help this dude out?
I heard that if a dumpster is locked, instead of cutting the lock and possibly making someone angry you can remove the hinge temporarily on the back of the dumpster, remove the lid, and then put it all back together when you’re done. Does anyone know how to do this or how to remove the bolt in the way? The bolt is really hard to get off without also spinning the metal bar so it doesn’t come off if that makes sense. Feel free to message me too if you don’t want it to be public!
Any of my followers have any tips or hints for this dumpsterer?
Hey everyone, after raising nearly 200$ for animal rights activists in southern California, I’ve decided to give away my dumpster diving zine for free.
Thanks again to everyone who helped out, and thanks to everyone who bought one. Every penny went to a good cause!

I went on a 4 hour bike adventure/dumpster dive with my besssst budsssss earlier tonight,
and among a bunch of other AWESOME TREASURES, I found this book. It’s fucking amazing. It was soooo cool that I had to call dibs really loudly ahahaha.
On the spine it says “Magic and the Supernatural”.
Fucking hells to the yes.
Aw! You’re so welcome! That’s one of the reasons I created this blog. So, fuck yeah.
Uh, yeah. I don’t even have a witty caption for this dive. I went after work to see if I could get some fruits to make sangria and things…escalated.
This kind of thing makes me more than a little pissed off at our wasteful society, even as I benefit from it. When a store worker came out with the soy milks, my eyes bugged out of my head. Noticing my enthusiasm, the man said “They’re no good, long expired.” The dates on the cartons are in late May and June of this year. I’ve drank almond milk a year and half “bad” that tasted great. On the flip side, I met a fellow diver, a middle aged man, who put the good things on the top of the dumpster for “the women and kids that can’t reach the bottom.” I felt like saying “I’m sure these women are more than capable of climbing inside,” but all that gender stuff aside, it’s a genuinely selfless gesture and restores my faith in humanity a little.
Some things I got today (not comprehensive): organic tofu, organic soymilk, a bag of potatoes, carton of strawberries, a variety of fruit and greens, green beans…etc…
Let the washing begin.
The thing I love about where I dumpster most of my veggies is how reliable and accessible it is. I’m going to a queer youth retreat this weekend so I only needed a couple things. Tomatoes for sandwiches, an eggplant to fry up tomorrow, some muffins for morning and a green pepper is always useful.
I also just came back from having sex on the beach with someone who looks like Prince.
Insert contented sigh here.
