I’ve been dumpster diving since around late December 2014. Places I have gotten discarded food include in an alley (no dumpster, just all in boxes on top of or next to wood pallets) next to a fruit shop in Randwick Shopping Plaza (where Coles is located); three dumpsters at Paddy’s Markets Haymarket; Woolworths Chatswood loading bay; and two dumpsters at the two supermarkets in Springwood. 771 more words
