I doubt anyone cares about my "awesome find," but I managed to get a BBQ ignitor (good as new, just a little dirt on it), 5 feet of 4" ABS, a 4" coupler, and 20 feet of 2" PVC, all for $3.
I like my find better. :D

My friend Tyler and I found 2 10 foot sections of 4" ABS, 12 feet (overall) of 1/2" copper pipe, 16 BBQ igniters, a 3/8" Ball valve, a Fire extinguisher tank, and a giant machine loaded with at least 30 steel fittings of various sizes for free, over the course of one week.

I found a 2001 Kenwood Stereo setup, working perfectly, it came with...
Kenwood-Graphic Equalizer(with Radio)
Kenwood-Stereo Intergrated Amplifier
Kenwood-Stereo Double Auto Reverse Cassette Deck
Kenwood-7CD player.

It retailed for $439NZD which is $343USD
The guy said he didn't know how to use it so he chucked it.

Are you kidding me?!? How stupid can someone get? I've been meaning to buy a shotgun actually, I guess now all I need to do is find someone that doesn't know how to use theirs...

My neighbor does that all the time, he takes the PC's from people he knows and fixes them up. If he can't fix it, he parts it and uses the parts to fix up other computers even better. It's a great way to make money.
