        My family once found a generator in a dumpster and restored it.

                A filing cabinet that I helped my dad get from a housefront curb back in 2003. I also found a glow-in-the-dark plastic Halloween skeleton that I used to decorate my bedroom with.

                            No because that's what vagrants do. I have a job I don't need to go pawwing through other people's garbage.

                                Just today I was donating some tapes to Goodwill when one of them dropped on the ground.I forgot it and it was ran over by a car. I then picked it up and threw it in the trash.

                                      My brother's friend found a Blu-Ray player on the curb and gave it to him. We haven't had a chance to test it out yet. We'd definitely need to get a new TV to even try the player. As for myself, I don't pick anything up from the curb unless it's garbage at work that needs to be thrown in the trash.

                                        When you can pick up something off the curb that in retail could run between $400-$600 dollars and save more useless crap from being put into a landfield somewhere I say better for everyone. Not everything people toss out is trash many times it could something as simple as a loose wire or a wobbly leg that they just did't want to mess with. I'm not saying rip into other peoples garbage bags but if I saw a book case or table that was sturdy and just needed a little refinishing to bring it back to new even if I did't need it I know many organizations that can always use good donations.

                                        My brother found an NES someone tossed out in the junk fully working with games just a few months ago.

                                          I picked a butt cheek from a blonde bombshell. Its a matter of patience and think always ahead of the curb.
