Redux addenda

Another problem, which is a prime motivator for Rex, if I understood the News-Miner article correctly, is that people could get hurt whilst mucking around in a Dumpster. The truck drivers have to worry about people running around the transfer site attempting to get the goodies out before they get hauled off. One concern Rex had voiced the last time this went around was worry that somebody sleeping in a Dumpster could get killed when the trucks scoop up the container. That, of course, is a problem of not having sufficient places for homeless people, or a way to engage their trust enough so that they will come to the places that are available. Unfortunately, the only one available is on a religious mission, which can be a problem for some people, homeless or not, and that one's been in financial trouble lately. Fortunately, it's still operating.
