With that being said,  before you just go diving into a dumpster keep in mind there are a few things you need to know to make it legal. You need to read the signs around the dumpster.

A major thing that is pointed out in the world of dumpster diving is safety. Here are a few tips I have learned if you decide to give this a try. Tip number one do not go alone. There are many reasons for this but the obvious one is if you fall in you will have help to get out. Number two is wear the proper clothing. Dress in long pants, long sleeved shirt and also wear gloves. This is to protect you needles, razors and broken glass that may be found in a dumpster. The next thing is to bring a flashlight to see what is in the dumpster. Most dumpsters are behind buildings in area that are not very well lit. Oshkosh

When you are done diving in that dumpster, make sure that all items that you are not going to keep are placed back into the dumpster.  It is also a nice gesture to repack the dumpster to where there is now more room in that dumpster from when you first arrived.
