So the other day I got bored after work.
On the way home I saw a local business and got a little curious, so I took my first dive. I didn't jump in, haven't gotten that far yet, but I stood by the door to the dumpster and just started tearing bags open seeing what I could find. There was a lot of wasted food, I was very very upset with how much this location actually wasted in a day. I didn't eat anything because... well lets just say if I was going to go looking for food I would do it elsewhere... I wasn't looking for anything in particular as I said I was just very curious. This sparked my curiousity even more... so I searched around (Honestly looking for local laws) and came across this board. I am a member and I plan sticking around....
Does anyone have any suggestions on where I could go or check out if I wanted to just stop waste? I mean someone I know got electronic equipment (NEW) once and it kind of upsets me how much people in the world waste. I wouldn't mind getting some stuff while I am at it... but I got a few coupons out of the dumpster I checked and gave some away because I really didn't want them... I can guarantee the people I gave them to appreciated them more than I would of.
So here are my questions as a new comer :-)
1. Can anyone forward me to something so I can check the local laws in my State? (South Carolina)
2. What are some good places to check out? Off the top of my head I am thinking: Staples, Office Depot, Books-A-Million, Wal-Mart(Probably locked?), K-Mart, Best Buy, and Bi-Lo.
3. Any tips? :-)
4. How is everyone doing this wonderful Monday?
Thanks in advance and I am kind of excited about getting into this... oddly enough because I consider myself to be somewhat of a germ-a-phob... I hate washing dishes in the sink for crying out loud.... but I was digging through those bags and having a blast... I got pretty darn dirty too...
