Fishing for trash

Bankrupt Northwest Airlines published a booklet "101 ways to save money", for which they have gotten a lot of criticism, esp. because of a tip which the writer of the above article describes thus in his lead paragraph :

Bankrupt Northwest Airlines advised workers to fish in the trash for things they like

The quoted wording, which he gives down aways is:

not being “shy about pulling something you like out of the trash.”

Now, I would not interpret that as "fishing" in the trash, which would suggest to me digging around in people's trash, when you can't see anything useful at first glance. Actually, I don't see anything wrong with it. It's a way of recycling. Some people throw out perfectly good things. But I can see that for people stressed out with the possibility of losing their jobs, it may not be taken well.
