I was reading through an old thread: http://www.adisc.org/forum/diaper-ta...ed-diaper.html and it got me wondering...
While perhaps economical, I am not sure that diving into dumpsters for things people have disposed of is a good idea. That is because people generally dispose of DISPOSABLE diapers.
Nowadays I think they are actually bio-degradable, meaning that presumably bacteria break them down into base components and then there would be holes and stuff.
The only kind of diaper that presumably should be re-used are the kind which are designed to be re-usable, the kind that do not bio-degrade and which can be washed. I think these are the old-fashioned kind of cloth diapers.
I think that people would generally not be throwing these into dumpsters though, since they are more valuable and probably being reused.
