Neuburger Eng 102-104 28 January 2011 One Paragraph Essay A Skilled Scavenger Lars Eighner delivers interesting thoughts about his scavenging days in his “On Dumpster Diving”. Eighner had an interest in dumpsters and grew to be very experienced but at the same time he learned there were protocols to be followed. He explains that as dumpster divers scavenge for food they need to be careful to know which ones could be fatal or painful, as oppose to the foods that are safely edible. Eighner mentions how some people toss some bread or cheese out just for mold, when it could easily be scraped off and edible again. He also explains how some people carelessly throw out unopened food just because the expiration date has passed, not checking to see if the food is still edible. One of the foods Eighner mentions are dry foods like cookies, crackers, chips, cereal, pasta, and he explains that he will still eat the food only “…if they are free of visible contaminates and still dry and crisp” (358). Lars Eighner points out that there are many things to look out for when dumpster diving, and he shows to the readers that he is very skilled in his scavenging life.
