My brother was over a few days ago visiting with the family. I can't remember the whole conversation but at one point he mentioned having to throw out a pair of shoes he couldn't make work for him. He said he put them on top of the dumpster because he knew the homeless guys would want them. Apparently its a sort of signal to them that its up for grabs? Idk...I shrugged it off but it hit me a bit later. That's such a Seattleish frame of mind: rather than making them dumpster dive, just put what you know they will take on top.
It got me wondering as well, is this something you see in other cities?
