Some of the 3,554 reviewers questioned the legality of removing products from the store’s dumpsters and were impressed with the number of products found by @thedumpsterdivinggirls. “I want to try this but I’m a little scared! What if someone sees me or what should I be worried about? One of them asked.

Others have commented on or questioned the disposal procedures for expired products. “I was a director at Bath & Body Works. We had to throw away ALL returns or old / expired products, ”one said.
“Cali, we’re not throwing them away. The company comes to pick up barrels of damaged product, ”wrote another.
“Whoever did this didn’t follow protocol. We correctly distribute all mists and wallflowers. None goes in the trash, ”commented a third.
The Daily Dot has reached out to Bath & Body Works and @thedumpsterdivinggirls for comment.
