In 2011 (confirm?) three dumpster divers were taken in by local police and accused of theft. The following investigation concluded that according to the Swedish law dumpster diving cannot be compared to theft because the goods "don't have an economical value on the legal market". So unless one violates a trespassing law or does some damage of the property no existing fines can be applied.
Here you will basically find everything that they sell in the shop - bread, vegetables, fruits, dairy products, meat, even newspapers... The dumpster is locked on one side and closed with a bar on the other side, but if you managed to lift the top of the dumpster past the bar you're in! This is easier done for two people. There is a surveillance camera, connected to some big surveillance center somewhere in Sweden, so be careful - better to operate quickly sneaking past the cameras as fast as possible if you want to minimize the chances of meeting up with an angry guard. Beside the camera, the location is quite discrete, very few pass by... (Last checked: July 2011)
Same construction as the dumpster behind Ica - easier if there are two divers. Sometimes it's not locked in the back though, so then it's easy to get inside. Not very discrete location. (Last checked: July 2011)

The recycling dump is located in Heden, approx 4 km north of Orsa, and is easy to get in to. Taking stuff from recycling dumps is illegal in Sweden though. Here you may find furniture, wood, paint, porcelain, bikes and all sorts of metal stuff.

Have fun and be respectful while diving! Leave the place as you would like to find it! :)
