We’ve advocated dumpster diving for coupons for some time and even joked about getting IN the dumpster. Funny how things work out and I end up in the dumpster on national TV. Lol! I’m proud of being TLC’s resident dumpster diver, and I’ll continue to support getting coupons for free out of your recycling center!
Just a few points to make clear. These are tips that I practice and recommend:
- Only use newspaper-only recycle bins. Do not dig through garbage; it is unsafe.
- Get permission from your recycling center; they should be happy to give it.
- Just grab fron the front of the bin. No need to get IN the dumpster unless you’re going for style points or on a reality TV show.
- Lastly, if your 4 yr old is in the car and begs you to let him in the dumpster, you better give him your gloves!
