* Done in the ''{{Moonlighting}}'' episode "Atlas Belched", where David has to go dumpster-diving to find a lost rolodex for a client. * One episode of ''DiagnosisMurder'' had a couple of cops trying to get rid of a time bomb that had been planted in their car by throwing it in a dumpster. Then they had to go back, because some homeless guy saw them and decided to go see what they'd tossed in. They manage to get him away before it explodes, but soon after they guy throws up in the back seat. It was a brand-new car, too. * A ''SeeingThings'' episode has Louis and his Crown Attorney friend searching a dumpster for a syringe, which proves embarrassing considering they attract the attention of a Salvation Army officer who is convinced they are homeless.

* In [[VideoGame/Chulip]], your main character can look garbage cans and dumpsters for loot that can include a sweet potato to eat. But be careful, sometimes you can end up with poopy on your hand which does damage to your fragile heart. At least you can sell the poopy afterwards...
