Dumpster Diving Made Easy

dilly_dallyJune 7, 2009

Colleges are making a move to collect all the castoffs students leave behind and sell them. The good part is the stuff is not going into a landfil. The bad part is the stuff is being sold and no longer can people drive to campuses around the middle of June and load up their cars with perfectly good stuff that the students leave behind.

Finding out about one of these college campus rummage sales is still a good way to shop for bargains. Or find out how to start one in your area by contacting Dump and Run.

Just want to say Hi Dilly! You saved me from spending too much money on a mirror that was all wrong for my decor! That was a good money saving tip! Thanks!

As far as your post here, efforts like this are good for the environment, & maybe students will be more mindful of their things?
