Dumpster diving

while it is quite possible and easy in many cities to live completely out of the bins (e.g. London), skipping on motorway service stations can be difficult. There are cameras everywhere, and security can be fast.

Legal status

While dumpster diving in England and Wales may qualify as theft within the Theft Act 1968 or as common-law theft in Scotland there is very little enforcement in practice.

Common tips

  • For free drinks (hot chocolate, tea, coffee) find a reasonably big HSBC branch. There is usually a machine where you can get free drinks while waiting for assistance. Works throughout the country.
