The 2023 Dumpster Dive is here!

Attention everyone! Don’t miss out on our next Dumpster Dive, which is happening on Wednesday, October 25th. We have raided SparkFun HQ for inventory and have packed you some of the best boxes we have ever made. Each one-pound box will only cost you $40 and it will contain various exciting items such as boards, LEDs, kits, and more. Keep an eye on our social pages to get a sneak peek at the exciting items that found their way into the dumpster! This is a great opportunity to score some amazing loot, so make sure to mark your calendars!

Dumpster Dive 2023

What’s a Dumpster Dive? Between samples, customer returns, demo items and old stuff that’s been sitting on the shelves for way too long, we’ve amassed quite a few bins worth of various electronics. It ranges from one-off items, to items that are a little broken or ugly, to items that aren’t worth individually listing and selling. We didn’t like the idea of recycling them, since it could still be useful and worth getting into people’s hands. And so behold: the Dumpster Dive.

The 2023 Dive is live at 12:00 p.m. MDT – please be sure to adjust for your US time zone.

You will be able to find a link to the product on the Oct. 25th blog post, in the New Product Carousel, and on the New Product Page. Be aware that the product will appear on the post but won’t be clickable until 12 p.m. MDT.

Rules for the Dive:

Product will be live until we run out! We will not be returning to the made-to-order format of the past few dives. No backorders will be available.

Please be aware that having a Dumpster Dive box in your Shopping Cart does not guarantee that you’ll receive one! The only way you’ll know that you are getting a Dumpster Dive box is to complete your order and receive a confirmation number.

Unfortunately, we were unable to extend the Dumpster Dive outside of the United States again this year. This decision is still based on international shipping restrictions, compliance complications, and material handling safety concerns. We were really hoping to open this year’s Dumpster Dive up for international sales, but unfortunately we simply weren’t able to make it happen.

As a reminder: The Dumpster Dive is a gamble and the contents are not guaranteed. We will not provide tech support or returns on any of the goods since many are not products we ever supported, or they might be returns with unknown defects. We will be getting orders out as quickly as possible, but cannot promise same-day shipping. Happy diving!
