Odds and Ends

2 Turby Twists, 1 bottle of Renegerist Cold Cream, Duracell batteries with Phillips screwdriver (promo item), Sanitary pads, Similac and trash bags.

Tried to get more but the paramedics come on the scene. I guess someone had a medical emergency in the parking lot. Firefighters, cops are a bad idea when you’re diving, so I left. But very good finds. I love those turby twists, they are great for people who have long hair like me who’s hair is hard to dry.



  1. Last time I checked there were no expirey dates on things like screwdrivers and sanitary napkins!! These people who throw out perfectly good items should be fined.

  2. Yes they should Tammy. Some of these retailers are engaging in tax fraud. They throw the things out and claim they’re either stolen or damaged. Some of them, not all.

    Many times it’s just plain laziness. Rather than setting aside items that could be salvaged and given to either a battered women’s shelter or some type of charity, they just throw it in the trash and it ends up in our landfills which eventually poison our groundwater (especially if it’s electronics thrown in the trash).

    Eventually companies will get it what they’re doing to Mother Earth.

  3. I know there is a lot of waste that does not belong in dumpsters or set next to them. We had a condo in FL at one time and it was something to see what good things get thrown in them and the good furniture they toss. We started setting some very usable things near the elevators with a note saying TAKE. It was a great way of sharing with your neighbors and no one really knew who took advantage but they always dissappered. If you are dumpster diving I hope you are using protective gloves as otherwisw you are taking big risks to your health as for one you don;t know who handled things that you touch last. Be very carful.
