Christina Nellemann, is back with a new post. She wrote for Save Reno Dumpster Diving on 12/8/08 about the difference between dumpster divers and identity thieves.
Some things I have found in Dumpsters:
*Several boxes of tile, including a box of slate tile that I have used for art and house projects.
*Packages of dry grout for said tile
*A nearly new life jacket for waterskiing
*An antique chair that I painted and sewed a cushion for
*Electrical and lighting components
*Books and magazines (including a couple dozen Playboys)
*CDs and DVDs (even a batch of pornographic DVDs...is there a pattern here?)
*Some logs from a cottonwood tree that I use for outdoor "tables"
*Computer components (hard drives, external drives, hubs, CD burners)
*Clothes and shoes
