    I never considered myself much of dumpster diver but i live in a rental currently and out my back gate is a dumpster. Most tenants are forward thinking enough to put "trash" in the can and possible useful items next to it. Since i've lived there ive picked up:

    2) television sound bars, both in near perfect working condition
    1) Pioneer CS-99 floor speaker (sold for 250.00)
    1) complete Xbox system with 30 games and 4 controllers (sold for 120.00)
    1) Brother photo capable printer/scanner, like new condition
    random canvas toolbags/totes and other random useful items like shop rags, latex gloves.

    all of this and i've only been there a few months. I hope the trend continues!

    Two best finds

    Saw a sealed white envelope marked "2007 Payments". Tore open the end and found two private checks; in between them was a $20.00 dollar bill.

    Another day the dumpster was filled and the only way I could go through it was to drive my pickup within a foot of the front of the dumpster so I could stand the rear bed to start looking. The top layer was filled with large flattened cardboard boxes. I saw a bike wheel and tire sticking out the left side of the stacked layers. As I got to the wide spacing between the layers I saw a whole blue bicycle. Lifted it out and on to the pickup bed. It is a 21 speed Mongoose!!

    Have not dumpster dived in a long time. Used to hit 2 places pretty regular, a local cell phone store, which back in the early to mid 90s would just trash all phones they got on trade in. I would clean them up and resell quite a few. Never found any worth a lot, but found a lot of $20-$30 phones. Second place was a video store. They were always throwing out promo materials for movies and the first couple days of the month would throw out movies. Sometumes they were messed up, but usually it was because they had a bunch for a popular movie and as it declined in popularity they would purge a few copies.

    Other than that I would also get the bulk trash collection schedules from the cities, and drive by the curb trash looking for treasures. Mostly found furniture, nothing super valuable, but did find some nice older pieces.
