'Ponty' as it's known locally, is a student town, as Glamorgan University is just down the road in Treforest.
If you want to dumpster dive here the two best places are;
the Tesco, where you can find the bins on Catherine Street near the station (Last checked: October 2012)
and the Iceland on Taff Street that you have to skip during the day and is only possible when the shutters to the back are open (and avoid getting locked in like Rossignol did!) (Last checked: August 2012)
You could also try skipping the Co-op on Taff Street at night (looks possible after a moderate amount of climbing over the gates at the back on Morgan Street).
