Hi Anne and others,
Dumpster diving is not illegal even though the grocery stores don't like their wasteful ways exposed or exploited. Here in New York, as well as in other places, media has shown dumpster diving and other freegan activities. We (the NYC freegan group) have found no correlation between media coverage-- and some of it has been extremely high profile, like NY Times, LA Times, ABC World News and Oprah-- and grocery stores locking or compacting their waste.
There is some controversy between freegans who want the wasteful system to change even if it means losing freebies, and some dumpster divers who want to keep free resources available and semi-secret. By having publicly announced trash tours, the Washington DC group has already opted for the more open and public strategy.
Best,
Madeline

Aren't you afraid that this publicity might put a stop to the diving?  I'm sure it's probably not legal and maybe the grocery stores don't like it either.  It would be a pity if they do stop it.
