I work in LoDo (Lower Downtown Denver), across the alley from The Tattered Cover Bookstore at 16th and Wynkoop, and they are throwing a ton of stuff out. A minute ago, they just hauled 2-good sized benches/tables out to the rollaway dumpster. They appear to be in pretty good shape. They both look to be about 2+feet deep. One is probably 7+feet long, while the other is probably 5-feet long. I’m sure there will be more. I am sitting here watching them throw this stuff out and can hardly stomach it. I will help you load. Please let me know you’re coming. Appear to be constructed of pine and plywood etc. There is also some random scrap wood as well (old shelving maybe?).

These would likely make excellent assembly tables, or something similar. Better come quick, as there was already one truck here hauling a couple of similar items away. I have no idea if they’ll be back or not.

I’ll post updates as I see more come out, or some of it disappear.

They are perfectly happy with you taking and using these items, as they waited for the other guys to grab a few things before throwing more away.

Just went and took a closer look. The one is about 6-feet long and maybe 2-feet deep, while the other one is about 5-1/2-feet long and about 3-feet deep.

Tried to snap a couple pictures on my phone. I’ll upload them shortly.

The longer, shallower one just disappeared. A guy that lives upstairs just carted it off.

Second one is disappearing. Guy upstairs snagged it too. If anything else comes out, I’ll keep you posted. There will likely be more scrap plywood, misc. lengths of pine boards, etc.

I worked until 8pm last night and the dumpster was full of this kind of stuff. When I got here at 10am this morning, there was a fresh, empty dumpster ready to be loaded back up.

I just saw that there is a smaller table that is about 2’x2’, with a metal stand underneath. The metal stand might be good as a planer table, or small sanding table, etc. I just don’t have any room right now, or I’d probably snag it.
