YOur so right about that. I am retired military, and what they throw
away is ureal. I could make one super garden shed or barn with the
large huge beautiful plywood crates etc they throw away. At every base
I have ever been at there was a letter in the upper corner of the
units bulletin boards, stating it was against the reg to remove
anything from a dumpster, and wold lead to punishment. LOts of folks
would throw good items away and then retreive them later. ONe time
while diving in dumpsters, I had the need for a few old tires to start
a fire to burn brush piles. Its a common practice to use old tires,
placed under piles of uprooted trees and brush, and fill the tire up
with some diesel fuel and light it to light the tire and produce a
good hot fire to ignite the wood., Anyway while gettting a fe tires
out of a dumpster by a tire dealer, I found 5 brand new top line tires
under all the other tires. ALl the same brand and size. Evidently some
employee placed them there during the course of the day (Saturday) and
intended to retreive them that night or Sunday before the dumpster was
emptied, which around here is usually Monday thru Friday afternoons. I
just know he was surprised when he found his stash missing.

We'd all probably be in hog heaven in Japanese metropolises, where living space
is tight, rent sky-high and the moderately well-to-do allegedly just throw out
a lot of almost new stuff when they want to redecorate. Makes sense in a way:
if you only have space for one table and four chairs, something's got to go.
