MAKE IT A DUMPSTER DIVING CHRISTMAS (unofficial dive)

Since we have not yet convinced TJ's to adopt a corporate policy to end food waste in all their stores, you have an opportunity this Christmas season. If you are a diver, then you probably already know.....if you're not, here's some Christmas advice for you. TJ's is closed on both Christmas Day and New Year's Day, which means that the stores typically have twice the waste on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. This is a fantastic time to hit the dumpsters for the first time if you've never been, and also an opportunity to grab some bags of food and hand them out like some freakish dumpster Santa Claus! All TJ's locations close tonight (12/24/10) at 6:00pm. Let the hunt begin!

Don't dive till later (try 9pm or so just as a safety and security precaution)

If folks want to meet up in Rockville shoot me an email and I will try and make it out (I would probably need a ride though no car and have no interest in biking out too rockville or bethesda)

Happy Holidaze or happy December or not,
Jeff

Many apologies for not being able to coordinate dives and get back to people

    I have always been pleased with my haul at TJ's. I tried Panera Bread on Saturday,but I think I was too late. I also noticed they have different days scheduled for each of their dumpsters. Any tips?

    I just got hundreds of bagels and bread from Panera Bread. Trader Joe's is on the list tonight.
