Garbage Scout

January 30, 2006 at 8:09 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

In many urban areas there exists a culture of citizen scavengers.  Recyclers. Dumpster divers.  Call them what you will.  These energetic souls are skilled at finding gold in the garbage of others.  Some sell the stuff (eBay, Craigslist) while others use their finds for personal gain (furnish their apartment).

 New York City is a forerunner of this habit.  http://garbagescout.com/ meets the need.  This site is an interesting mashup of google maps and images emailed sent from cell phones.  The result: a map showing photographs and locations of garbage goodies.
