Scavenging OK?

I have always enjoyed scavenging scrap/ discarded electronics and reselling the raw materials (copper mostly and a tiny bit of gold) should I scavenge on an exploration for useless junk to sell for raw materials or is this unethical for most explorers

there is a search feature you know

I suggest you start with search word ethics, then move on to scrapping, theft, selling stolen property etc

generally we like to keep all discussion topics about exploring, if youre exploring and the police see you leaving with an armful of copper or scrap electronic stuff youre now a burglar plain and simple

I know that this thread is a bit old, but I will express my thoughts none the less if someone happens upon this post. Not only are you stealing stuff, BUT it causes more disturbances for other explorers that merely want to visit a location to take photos and experience the location. You might be causing an eye that hasn’t been focused on the location to actually look more closely.

More focus on a location from the authorities = Less opportunity for explorers to experience the place.


Just don’t do it.
