We’ve heard of extreme couponers dumpster diving for coupon inserts right? Well wait until you read this…
Would you believe …..A man who earns a 6 figure income working as a security specialist claims he makes MORE per hour dumpster diving?!
Matt Malone from Texas hauls in an average of $2,500 worth of goods from each dumpster-diving excursion.
Malone started dumpster diving 9 years ago, when he was working at a lower-level corporate security job. His employer had assigned him to do some ground investigation work. The most effective way to do this was to dig through his client’s trash. Sure enough, after just a couple of weeks of looking through the dumpsters outside the client’s offices, he got what he needed. Document loaded with the confidential information of thousands of customers. But he also discovered something else. One night while doing his research, he decided to poke around in neighboring trash bins, including the dumpster at OfficeMax. Inside he discovered “a whole bunch of printers, discontinued lines that were still in the boxes.” He took the printers home and put them in his garage. He couldn’t stop at just that and started exploring nearby dumpsters. What he found was unbelievable!
Flat screen TV’s, stereos, GPS devices, and so much more. At first he was keeping everything in his home but one day decided to have a yard sale and made over $3000 on the items he had! He now profits over $2,500 searching dumpters part time in addition to his full time job!
Tell us! Would you try this if you knew you could make this money or is the idea to gross?
Is dumpster diving legal?
YES. At least if you follow the rules, which basically comes down to not dumpster diving in areas clearly marked as private property or otherwise restricted areas.
