Dumpster Diving Days...

Dumpster Diving Days...

Postby Nabashalam » Mon Aug 01, 2011 4:10 pm

Is there a certain day that all those moving out for the turnover of rental leases are to put there junk on the streets? Is there an official start and end date for our annual Dumpster Diving Days :?:

Leases tend to expire on Aug. 15, so plus or minus a couple days. The city is out during the time picking up trash, so you might have to act quickly.

I believe the term is Hippie Christmas.

It is my understanding that anything dumped at the curb is technically city property, and therefore isn't available for rummaging. That said, stuff usually starts piling up the weekend immediately prior to Aug 15th.

Bed bugs refer to it as the annual diaspora.

I intend to only take non porous items. No cloth, upholstery etc.

Also clean and inspect it before it sets foot in my place...

That's what I get for using my phone with auto correct without paying attention.

Cool, the bedbugs won't have to walk to their next infestation.
