I've picked a few things out of the trash on my way to work. So, if it's later than 8:00, there aren't as many people out and I don't feel so sheepish. Wait too long, though, and the garbage man has already visited.

Some people put salvageable stuff out a couple days before garbage day. I saw a Cardioglide on the way to church one morning, and picked it up after dusk that evening. I've grabbed a couple dehumidifiers and other things that fit in my trunk, but every once in a while I need to go home and get the van. Whether I do that at lunch or after work (or even right away) depends on how much I want the thing that's set out.
