@benj I am beginning to see a theme of jealousy surrounding my dumpster diving skills… I am always willing to partner up with other dumpster diving enthusiasts if you want to join… we could start a coalition, a club or even just a squad… We could call it Dumpster Divers for Meh, Future IRK Recovery Specialists or The Dumpster Diving Search and Rescue Team… I can see it now… matching jumpsuits, masks and gloves with our codenames… EPIC
@Koolhandjoe Would love to see such an organized venture exist, however, I am past my prime to become an active member. It should be a crime to toss something in a landfill/incinerator that could be utilized by someone else! Besides the obvious adverse effect on the environment, it will just use up more raw material that is increasingly becoming harder to come by, to manufacture a new item to replace the “waste” item! The worst offenders are businesses who would rather toss something rather than see someone have it for free. My dad used to have a business next to an office design store that, when they moved, put brand new (floor models) furniture out to and by the dumpster. I talked to the owner who said it was just more cost effective to get rid of it and I was welcome to it! Needless to say, I have top of the line executive office furniture in my home office!
So please, go forth and create the new team! I will be on the sidelines rooting you on!

That’s one of the perks with living in the south. Put your stuff on the roadside and it will ‘disappear’ in short order. I have gotten rid of lots of stuff that way that someone picked up. one man’s junk is another man’s treasure…
Don’t need any of the other stuff, but we’d been talking about getting some tracker tiles for our tv remotes, so this seemed like a good enough deal - bundle of tracker tiles, now with a bunch of other free crap I don’t need but could always use more as backup (you can always have more portable powerbanks, after all). Well, except the silly putty, that’s gonna go in the free bin downstairs, probably.
Quick word of advise. Plan to change out the batteries in the TrackRs when you put them in service. If these are like the ones sold here previously they will arrive with batteries that are dead or nearly dead. Cheap batteries are easy to come by, changing them out not so much so… Look at old sales on meh for instructions/hints.
That being said, I like the one I put on my keys and have used it to find my phone more often than my keys!
