Dumpster diving is the dubious practice of sifting through rubbish to find items that have been discarded by their owners, but which may be useful to the scavenger.


Dumpster diving is popularly undertaken throughout the world. (the richer the area, the richer the pickings).

Dumpster diving can also be refered to as skip diving, treasure hunting, urban foraging and curb shopping

Dumpster Divers will not only pick up discarded items left at the roadside, but some will climb into skips left on the roadside and behind shopping centers.

All ages.

The eye for something usefull, and the eye for a bargan.

Dumpster Diving is the modern name for an activity with its origins in the mists of time. An activity applauded in many in many parts of the world, a necessity in others. In the United Kingdom it has become difficult, criss crossing a plethora of modern legislation. Councils now have recycling collections and amenity waist collection centres, which have complicated ownership of discarded items. And scavengers should technically be in possession of waist carriers licences and safety certificates.
