Site icon Things I find in the garbage

First come first served


The weather today was really nice. It didn’t feel cold even with the occasional strong gust of wind. I went on a long walk and managed to avoid all the rain as well.

I was gone for about two hours. It wasn’t trash day but I did see a few things out for tomorrow’s pickup. In an alley in Rosemont (next to St-Hubert I think) I found a bike tire that looks to be in good shape. I hope it fits my bike because my front tire is long overdue to be replaced! If not they can use it down at the bike co-op.

I came across this trash heap back in the Plateau. Three of those bags are just full of (French) books. Another bag was full of CDs and another had some other random stuff, including an old Xbox and a cool faux-gas lamp. I took the CDs and the Xbox (I haven’t tested it yet, however). There was also a nice teapot that I left on the street for someone to take.

I invite anyone interested to check out these books and etc! Trash day in this area is Tuesday evening, so they should be around for a day and a half yet (assuming no one else finds them first). Based on the profile of the trash I think someone moved or is moving very soon and decided to leave this stuff behind.

If interested you can find this trash on the corner of St-Andre and the alley just north of Laurier on the left-hand side (the alley runs adjacent to Laurier).
