I'm all for it, provided the construction site isn't plastered with No Trespassing signs. I hate to see whole bins full of 2x4s, 2x6s, plywood and other very useful stuff go to waste. Sometime I'll probably get a bunch to make a blind or treestand or something. A year or two ago I got some wood from a dumpster and used it to build a trailer for my bike. If I actually felt like dragging it out to the spot, I might use that trailer as a deer cart as well.

Anyway what are your thoughts on dumpster diving? I think some people don't like it or see it as theft, which I disagree with. The only reason not to dumpster dive (in my opinion) is if it's on property that's posted, and even then I might take the risk My way of thinking is "it's ok until someone tells you to stop" In other words, it's fair game unless someone who works at the site tells me they don't want people in the dumpsters. No signs, fair game...what do you think?

Well.....if I had a mind to do it (which I don't), I'd at least get permission before diving in.

Um id say no unless you have permission. Alot of construction sites actually take some of those dumpsters to salvage places and get some money for the contents. So in my opinion that would be stealing. Just ask first. I wouldn't hunt somebodys land without permission and I wouldn't dig through their trash with out it either!

Ask !

I have called the cops several times on vagrants who were raiding my construction dumpster. They always seemed to move on to looking inside the house, under the house, in garages....

Even had one clown pulling aluminum siding off my house while I watched from across the street while waiting in line to vote.

IF you ask politely and tell them what you are going to use it for they will almost always say yes, provided you don't make a mess.
