Strange Things Found in Trash
Dumpster diving, garbage picking, trashing. Whatever you want to call it, it’s not something that only needy people do. At times there are true treasures that are pulled from dumpsters and trash cans. People have made amazing and valuable discoveries by picking through trash, but usually the things people find in the trash are pretty much, well, trash. In many of the following cases, one man’s trash is another man’s weird find.
Back in 2005 a guy in Rhode Island scored a lottery ticket worth $1 million while dumpster diving. The odds of duplicating that kind of luck are somewhere between “no way” and “not a chance,” so you’re better off scrapping the idea of fishing through your neighbor’s trash tonight.
A few years ago a woman reported that she accidentally threw out $15,000 in cash that her husband had secretly hidden inside a Styrofoam cooler. The cash was never found, or perhaps it might be more accurate to state that the cash was never reported as being found.
Another trash collector managed to find not one, but two Rolex watches. Each was found at a separate time, and they both only needed minor repairs in order to be restored sufficiently to sell off for a nice payday.
A homeless guy picking through the trash in 2008 found confidential blueprints for New York City’s Freedom Tower. Yes, that’s the same Freedom Tower that was targeted by four base jumpers who managed to penetrate the facilities ultra-tight security and leap off the building in March.
