Rick, I don't like glowing rocks in the kitchen trash!
It has been over a year and a half since our last one, but Dumpster Dive is back... soon. In less than a month, on Wednesday, September 13, we will be making Dumpster Dive available once again. However, we will be changing things up a bit this year.
The biggest change is that we will not have a set number of available Dumpster Dive boxes as in previous years. This means when you place an order we will build the box in the order the order is received. Built to order!
This new approach to Dumpster Dive took quite a bit of planning (hence the lateness). With that planning came a few new rules that we needed to impart on the event. We've outlined most everything in this next video:
Right, so with a new way of approaching the Dumpster Dive event, we needed to put in place a few more rules. If you didn't watch the video, here it is at a glance:
Most of these rules have been around for previous installments of the Dumpster Dive, but this year we have the addition of United States and economy shipping only. To be honest we didn't want to add these new rules, but made the decision based on shipping restrictions becoming stricter and stricter with increased duty fees, compliance complications and material handling safety concerns. In the future we might be able to open up the Dumpster Dive to the world again, but at this point we can't make any promises.
And that is pretty much it! We will be sending out a few reminders and updates over the course of the next month. If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments below, and we will answer them as quickly as possible. We'll see you on September 13!
