“Before we started doing our videos, a lot of the (Dumpster dive) videos consisted of people just sitting in their room, showing what they found. They could have been lying,” Garza says. “We were like, ‘No, let’s show. Let’s take them on for the ride.’”
In 1988, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Dumpster diving is legal except where prohibited by city governments. Under the ruling, trash becomes public domain once thrown out. And in San Antonio, the practice appears to be legal.
