Hmmm, I’m inclined to disagree. Are you a local dumpster diver? I’d be interested to hear what it’s like in Darwin. The blog post I linked to (which was Australia-specific) explained that there was so much stuff to be found that divers usually leave a lot of it behind. It also described most divers as middle-class citizens who can afford to buy the stuff they find, but choose not to because they don’t want to support excessive consumerism. It pointed out that the homeless “prefer to go to soup kitchens … and are comparatively choosy”. Even when told where to go for food, they apparently don’t or won’t do it.
