  • I love seeing what people take from my pile when we put out hard rubbish.

  • I have never heard of verge pick up but if I think what I think you mean we have found many things and made use of them

  • what is verge pickup? I’ve never heard of it!

  • I cannot resist driving past a pile of goodies on the verge without having a sticky beak. I have found so many good things and made use of them or sold them on. The best find was a queen Anne style kidney shaped dressing table, complete with drawers, 3 sectioned mirror and matching stool. I wanted to take the handles off to go on a piece of furniture I had at home and when I saw how good it was I squeezed it into my hatchback. I ended up cleaning it up and put it on eBay where numerous people bid on it. I got $200 and saved it from going to the tip.

  • we have found a few things, picked up some chairs and i painted them and they looked great. also found a punching bag (kids loved it) and a basketball ring just needed a new net.

  • Wow people find some great stuff I’m going to have to look a bit harder.

  • I just find toys, nothing wrong with them. I don’t understand why they get thrown out

  • SO much stuff! Bits and pieces but the best one I found was a ping pong table – nothing wrong with it!!!!!

  • I have seen really good children’s toys, bikes and trikes. I didn’t have a need for them though.

  • Where I live, what’s thrown out for hard garbage collection really is trash! But my son gets heaps from the area he lives. He got a whole heap of Xmas decorations one year, including a train that goes round the tree, most of the stuff was still in the packets….unopened. He’s got an outdoor setting. A barbecue that he fixed up a little bit. He’s got a couple of fridges. Most things he picks up are still in their box. Some things he keeps, some he sells off, some need fixing up but most are good to go

  • We recently received a large set of drawers!

  • Wow that’s an awesome find. Mostly furniture. I know someone who used to collect fridges that were broken and fix them.

  • Great for the pram. I found an old bed frame. We painted it and used it in our bedroom.
