I think technically they can report you for stealing – don’t quote me, but think they can,
Thanks Calliecat,I suppose that’s why most people go dumpster diving at night.
I’ve noticed some skips are padlocked .
Has anyone sucessfully asked a hospital or a restaurant for scraps for the chickens? I’ve been meaning to approach my locals, but I’m a bit… Chicken.
Ah well, as it turns out, I missed the show entirely as we were in the process of moving house these last few days. I will need to iview it later. Glad it was as good as I thought it would be.
karyn: You might find that the dumpsters are locked at night to stop people dumping their own rubbish in the bins.
colours: I believe there are charity organisations that do go around for food scraps from restaurants etc .. and give it to Meals on Wheels etc..
Colours, I haven’t tried restaurants etc but our local IGA is very happy to give their vegie scraps and old bread away as chook food – you have to be lucky to be there at the right time to get them as quite few in our town ask for them!
Theres is an organisation set up to take all leftover foods from restaurants,cant think what it’s called.
At work the other day we went to a pub for lunch and the food left on the plates was incredible.I walked past a table with 2 plates with a large piece of steak left on each,I thought god my dogs would love that.
After we’d eaten, all the food scraps were put in a plastic bag and taken home for my dogs,I even do it when out to lunch with friends,they’re used to me now.
Yes, loved the show….fab idea. Used to work at Target and saw the massive wastage. Made me really mad, especially when the store manager made staff break things before they went in the skip so no one could resue things that could be cleaned or repaired.
I remember a faux fur blanket and a sheet sheet and pillow were used on a manchester display……then THROWN AWAY because they had been ‘used’!
ah IGA really? I thought the supermarkets would be the least likely. I’ll ask out friendly IGA man next time I’m there, thanks for the heads up.
