Law enforcement officials pushed back hundreds of people who were crowding around a large pile of merchandise outside an Augusta grocery store Tuesday afternoon.

Instead, the food people hoped to take home was tossed into the trash.
“People have children out here that are hungry, thirsty, could be anything. Why throw it away [...]

House Republicans say new U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) guidelines aimed at forcing students to eat fruits and vegetables are a failure because students across the country are simply tossing the healthy fare into the trash.
“[T]here remains great concern with the amount of food waste generated at school cafeterias, much of it brought on by requiring students to take fruits and vegetables rather than simply offer them,” Reps. John Kline [...]

The space agencies said a new docking attempt [...]

Driving down the road, into the water, on the sidewalk. It’s especially gross finding them in the sand at the beach. It’s no different from crumbling up trash and tossing it at your feet.
Edit: I don’t mean to insinuate that [...]

The article also stated how Groupon has been overstating revenues since its inception and how many merchants are turning against the company.
