ash trays, back packs, wooden chair, dryer sheets, diapers, clothing, Styrofoam, barbecue grill, quarts of oil, vacuum bags, wood, shoes, slippers, napkins, satellite dish, flowers, yard debris, bird seed, ashes, food, wicker basket, garden hoses, furniture, stuffed animals, toys, cigarettes, drywall, air conditioner filters, plant pots, dirt, weed cover, plants, power strip, bags of trash, insulation, paint cans, cat box, dryer lint, window blinds, pillows, cat litter, shower curtains, camping chair, oil jugs, neon lights, vinyl bags, oil rags, electronics, towels, tarps, belts, full bottles of soda, broom handles, air mattresses, carpet, vacuum hoses, air pumps, rugs, lawn chairs, house siding, slices of pizza, chair pads, pottery, hair, porcelain, sponges, welcome mat, blankets, car speakers, window screens, sheets, and carpet padding.
