    I went the other night and found some toner paint. What's some good uses for this stuff?

    Also came across a marble table. Best score of the night. Skateboarding will commence.

    You antisocial fucks know you don't have to go in the dumpster to get the fucking left overs, right? Just go in the store and ask the guy to give you some shit before he throws everything away. We used to do this every night at a local 24/7 dunkin donuts. At about 2:30 - 3am they would take everything off the shelves, throw it away, and restock with new. We told the dude to let us know when he was about to throw everything away and we would get like 20 free donuts.

    Lol anyone who dives for bingo dabbers needs to offer some up to people on here.
    I'm not giving away my info, but for people who can't get supplies like this and you've got like hundreds that's just being greedy.

    no dude not at all. once you start doing it more frequently you begin to notice that the best times to go are right before the weekly trash pickup, when they're full. for bakeries and grocery stores, find out what times they close and then be there an hour later, you'll get the freshest stuff and it should be on top.

    and for christs sake don't give up after one shitty dumpster. we go through dozens without finding anything of worth sometimes, but then again, sometimes you find 500 dollars worth of food and merchandise in a single dumpster, so there you go.

    My first time dumpster diving, behind a convenience store. Smelled pretty nasty, but it's a dumpster. I didn't find anything useful, but I found a bunch of bubble wrap. Most fun I probably could have had dumpster diving, lol, popped like every single one. I guess it's more fun with friends, but you'd have to share whatever you find I bet.

    Went again today, same convenience store. About 20 bottles of perfect Coke Zero and Fanta Orange. We drank / spilled / spit like 10 bottles, then I remembered to take a picture for this thread.

    yeah thats pretty sweet, i wanna check the dumpsters around the gas stations, see whats up. i dont know how many of you are familiar with the store hillers (its like a kroger for jews) anyway, my brother works there and every so often he comes home with frozen dijorno (sp?) pizzas like 2 weeks before the expiration date, he said the store told him to throw them away cause they were approaching expiration and he put them in his car. just something to look into, im sure kroger does it too.
