Sell nice landfill garbage on Ebay.

A great place to find cool stuff.

Here’s a great way to make some extra money! (Follow this advice only where this activity is legal.)

The other day I hauled a load of dead branches and stumps to the local landfill. While tossing debris from the back of my truck, I noted that there was a whole lot of interesting and potentially valuable garbage strewn about the dump. I took a few minutes, once my truck was empty, to pick through the trash. I found the following:

A very nice wooden stool with a broken leg.

A very expensive vacuum cleaner, broken and with no cord.

A bent umbrella.

A cracked aquarium.

Some dentures.

A dozen or so bits of beautiful mud-covered stained glass.

A toilet seat.

Some sort of fancy electronic equipment that I haven’t yet identified.

A ton of slightly moldy magazines.

A very small roll of brand new green shag carpeting.

Plastic bags containing what appears to be an extensive collection of sparkly rocks.

Several pretty old shoes.

A few more interesting things I haven’t yet identified.

So far, I’ve made nearly 3 dollars!
