Winter Runs in Rockville/Germantown;­ Every Mon, Wed, Thur.

TL;DR, Opening schedule for winter dives, Can bring disposable supplies, Willing to set up run dates and times, No car though.


There are a few people who are interested in liberating and utilizing viable goods in Rockville and Germantown.

The biggest problem are accessible vehicles, set time frames, and mostly just not knowing when to go where on which days!! D: C'est une horreux!

But fear not, for I am certainly available this winter for schedule checking businesses dump days, and assisted distribution of non-perishable and shelf stable goods to any suggested charities... If we feel like giving any away! :)

Any who are interested in traversing the areas, please post! We will work out contact/meet sites at cafes or coffee houses.

Supplies for diving can be provided, because I am a neat freak.
Duffel bags, galoshes/rainboots, "play clothes", hats, cars, hand warmers, flashlights will all be personal items.
Trash bags, gloves, face masks, and large plastic boxes can be provided by myself.


Dive areas can be google maps linked, and will be as posters list the areas they are willing to visit.
I am off viers mill rd and twinbrook pkwy.
An associate is off of old georgetown rd and democracy blvd.
WE are both experienced and willing to assist anyone with "friends" looking for a new experience.

    Hey guys, I just joined this group. My roommates and I have tried diving before but didn't find too much. We'd love to continue trying though and it'd be great to meet some other freegans in the area. So I read this thread but I'm a bit unsure: is this going to be happening every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday? I know we just barely missed last night's dive :/ My number is[masked] in case anyone wants to get in touch that way

    Good time... thanks Rey for leading and for all the awful puns, and thanks Crash, David & Lisa for driving... and David, I do hope your van doesn't smell like broccoli for too long.

    Great run! We hit paydirt at Trader Joe's (the staff left around 12:30) and MOM's. Lots of produce at MOM's, in the dumpsters enclosed by fence furthest away (there's two enclosed areas). Lots of assorted stuff at Trader Joe's in the dumpster immediately behind it.

    Sorry I missed you Rey, but I'm not sure I could have hung with you guys that late anyway. Yikes! My daughter makes all-nighters untenable.

    will we be diving tonight or just getting to know one another? I'd like to dive if anyone's game and knows of opportunities in that area.

    Ok, so..where specifically are we meeting?
    In front of one of the stores?
    PS. If you need it, I'm[masked] (and text-able if that method is preferred)

    I probably missed an important fact somewhere, so this may be a stupid question but...
    Is the plan to "meet every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday", or to "meet on Saturday, October 13th"?
    ..Or are we all just gonna figure something out via comments (which i have no problem with, haha)?

    I also don't have a car but I am willing to help people out just contact me and I will try and respond semi-quickly. Sorry to all, I am pretty constantly busy and I say I want to get back involved and I cannot so much do to getting up early for work and such.

    Likewise very interested and have wheels. I'm pretty open about the area but for the sake of sleep would like to keep it between Bethesda and Gaithersburg...I'm up by the Rockville Metro.

    Definitely interested, and I have a car.

    IF only one or two people post, the dives will still happen.
