6:30 pm on a clear day about 100˚

The dumpster was pretty full with a mix of unfortunate smelling garbage and more usable things. I poked around and sifted through what I could reach. Here's what I found.
This photo doesn't capture the unfortunate smell coming from deep within the pile.

Inventory #1

As part of the Give Take Give project, I'll be keeping close track of the the stuff that's circulating through this unique free economy.

Below is the first inventory I have done of the dumpster's contents and area next to it. I'll be fiddling with the format of these inventories in the weeks to come, but basically I'm trying to list all the things I can see in and around the dumpster without actually getting in to it or emptying it out. Each of these inventories will be accompanied by photos taken during my observation.
