Dumpster diving for fun and profit

Term has ended here in Bath, and the residence is drowned in the usual deluge of discarded kitchen goods. Bath Uni is pretty bad at doing anything with this but sending it to landfill, which makes both and I rather pissed off. We’ve just had our annual dig through the mountain of rubbish (and I do mean mountain – we’re talking about a heap 2.5m high and about 4m side to side) and have picked out the following goodies:

  • A long mirror
  • A Sabatier vegetable knife (needs a little TLC, but nothing that some diligence with a whetstone won’t cure)
  • A laundry basket
  • A bale of bubblewrap 1m wide and about 1m in diameter.

Also spotted a couple of students digging through the pile, which is unsurprising since there are rich pickings to be had for all.
