boat loads of trash
i wish i liked super perfumy shampoos and body care products because those items were tossed out by the basket full. you name it and we found it. i found a nice lightweight blue blouse and rolls of unopened paper towels as well as pens and little containers to hold stuff. it truly boggles the mind what people throw away. we are still a hugely wasteful society, if this much stuff is thrown away just at this dinky university imagine all the other schools this time of year, what they must throw out. i understand the students have a limited time and they have to be out of the dorms. i understand they are zooming home and can't take all this shit with them but how is it possible they are so clueless or the university is so clueless or careless that measures aren't taken to at least TRY to recycle this stuff? one guy saw us looking through the dumpster and walking towards it as we were leaving, he yelled, hey do you want a printer? HUH?????? it looked new and perfectly good but i already have two. perhaps if i weren't on my bike i would have taken it myself to the mission.
