When you say dumpster..are u referring to skips people hire to get rid of rubbish or are you meaning the larger steel bins at shopping centers and apartment blocks? I'm keen to find some good locations to upcycle groovy waste...I swear some ppl must have too much money. Kerbside collection is a goldmine! Also charity bins that are overflowing...and their rubbish bins are a sight for sore eyes too as they can only store so much stock received so the rest is thrown out. Many dont accept electrical goods as it has to be tested so they chuck it out..also baby goods such ad prams/cots etc. Love a heads up in Brisbane where to visit or companies/places worth checking out. I was told beta electrical has a big bin worth checking out but haven't checked it out as yet
If you're going to do this seriously, go for both.
In the UK, council recycling depots/tips are a good sources of raw materials.
