A dumpster diver is someone who turns trash into something usable or edible. There also is the concept of table diving which is finishing off people's leftovers. In some countries such as China, you will become fat and round this way in no time. Using a table diving letter can be a good idea.
There are several reasons for dumpster diving:
- It's free (as in freedom).
- It's free (as in free beer).
- It's ecological, a form of waste reduction.
- It's fun and can be a nice social activity.
