Students we spoke with have mixed feelings on the practice.

"I think it's pretty resourceful if people are throwing it out in the garbage," Shamaya Wiliiams, an NYU students said. "I don't see what the problem is."

"Cards and test papers, I wouldn't want anybody going through that," one student said.
