    dude you don't "make skatewax"...
    it's just wax. and no one who skates is going to buy that. theyll find it in the garbage,find it at home, or rack it themselves.

    haha my and my friends bought an O

    took half for ourselves

    cut the other half with oregano like 3 parts oregano 1 part bud

    and sold it to a bunch of freshman in our school. get money!


    anyway on the subject of dumpster diving.

    i get mad old school bikes. a pair of bolt cutters. some bitchin speakers.

    but the best by far was a still warm pizza. someone ate like 2 slices and just put the box closed on top of a garbage can. taht was the best fucking pizza i've ever had

    The jackpot dumpsters are at construction sites cause they always toss out cans of paint that are still half-full. Back in the day one of my friends and I would go to the same site every couples days and there was always at lest 3 cans just laying there.

    Check it. When food passes it's expiration date. That doesn't mean it's bad. It means they can't sell it anymore because it's going to go bad soon. That said:

    There was this place near where I lived. They sold thise like...I dunno. Cans of dortitos and fritos and shit. They were like minuature chips and came in these plastic cans you could stick in your car's cupholed..I can't find a pic, know what I'm talking about?

    Anyway. Every week they would throw the expired (unopened) chips in this dumpster in the back of the shop. That was it. There was no trash in it, just hundreds of cans of fucking chips.

    Also check out known food banks. They throw away LOTS of fucking food on any given day, here's a pic to show you all the shit they threw out that would go bad a week from that day also things containing chocolate that don't have nuts or something else to keep the chocolate together gets thrown out regardless of when it will expire due to the fact that it will melt.

    Seems like a LOT of food that could go great in my stomach and the stomach of others at the next Food Not Bombs meeting.

    jackpot sintakz!

    grocery stores throw out produce like crazy all the time, but produce is more iffy than packaged food because it goes bad a hell of a lot easier, plus is basically out in the open, to the elements, and flies and shit.

    Compactors are evil.

    Do you think there would be anything good in like a hobby lobby or lowes/homedepot trashcan, or just trash?

    They might throw out some shit like "defective" canvas's and shit like that. Worth a shot. As for lowes I'm pretty sure they throw out the factory defects of paint that they don't s ell.
