    Default The Dumpster Diving Thread!

    Dumpster diving for graffiti:
    as writen by sk8er6 & smooth nuts (formerly GHOST 2-5-2)

    You donít like the idea of stealing, youíre a tree hugger, or just bored as hell, dumpster diving is always an option for getting supplies. Here are a few basic rules of thumb.

    Wear some clothes that you donít give a fuck about. Nothing too out there, maybe an old shirt and some beat up shoes.

    Make sure you have an idea of what people throw out in wherever youíre jumping into. For example, if jumping somewhere behind a school, prepare for food, paper, bottles, etc.

    Latex gloves are a must.

    If you see or feel a bag thatís full of paper towels, do not open it! Most likely they came from the restrooms.

    Donít use any foreign objects (crates, boxes, stools, etc) to hop into a dumpster. If you couldnít get it on your own, how are you supposed to get out?

    Usually, I pick through half of the promising bags from the outside, and then get the other half from the inside.

    If you see shredded bags in the dumpster before you got there, chances are someone beat you to it. So donít expect much.

    For major stores the best time to go is at the end of the month thats when they get new shit in so they throw out the old.

    Know when they pick up garbage in the area.

    Donít go while people are working.

    Where to get your shit at:

    Art schools, or behind an art department at a campus. Iíve heard of people getting legit supplies (half tube of oil paints, bucket paint, spray adhesive, etc.)

    Personally, the art department where I go is a little too close to the cafeteria. But I have managed to get a good bit of bucket paint.

    Did you get chased by a cop and lost your mop? Need a new mop? You can get one with a screw top. No need to shop, just get up and drop into a dumpster behind a bingo hall. Yup, quite a few bingo dabbers/markers in the dumpsters behind bingo halls. Get at Ďem. Watch out for drinks and nachos!

    Elementary schools. Now, I know the sketchiness of this, and I will admit, I have never been inside one. Whenever I pass a particular one, there is always glue sticks, glue pens, glue bottles, acetate, crayons, and dry erase markers next to the dumpster. Why, Iím not exactly sure, but theyíre there.

    Behind specialty paint stores.

    Where to get shit to sell:

    Blockbuster throws out dvds(they also throw out mags but you cant really sell those) at the end of the month in yellow envelopes,you will have to go through every one to find good dvds. Some say transfer and dystory on the front go throught it any ways some time worker get lazy and throw them out with out running it through the machine that fucks it up.

    I have always been able to find cell phones race cars dvds blank cds in radio shack dumpsters (pretty much any thing in the store).

    Dollar store always throw out small radios tapes fire works boom boxxes(again pretty much any thing in the store.

    Rite aid throws out cartons of cigs and most pawn shops buy them so go for it.

    Hardware stores always throw out saws drills bult cutter and shit like that.

    You can get small ladders at Sherman Williams. They also throw out "toner", paint pigment,really good for your mop mixes or roller pieces.

    Sick, that's being resourceful AND economic! Not to mention, ECO-friendly.
    one companies trash is another mans gold mine. One time I found a working but beat up old bike in a dumpster, fixed it up n still ride it today. theres no shame in realizing people throw out some pretty usable stuff.
    Anyone else got some good finds to share?
    "There was once a time when the Lexington was a beautiful line
    when children of the ghetto expressed with art, not with crime
    But then as evoloution past, the transits buffing did it's blast and now the trains look like rusted trash, and people wonder will graffiti ever last?"
