Dumpster? Furniture. Mainly a folding table that I used as a kitchen table. Also, a small bookcase that I had used to hold CD's. I no longer have them, they ended up being sold off when I left that place to relocate.

Garbage? Not so much garbage, but pre-garbage. My neighbor was going to throw out some fencing. Nice chain link fences (no posts, though) and wire garden fencing that I used in this years's garden. It worked really well in keeping out pests.
