ST. LOUIS - Barb Kruse isn't a person you'd expect to find inside a trash bin. But that's where the 44-year-old mother of two teenagers and part-time church secretary goes for discarded treasures, some of which she gives to charity. Armed with flashlights, rubber gloves and hand sanitizer, she decided to become a dumpster diver after hearing a story from a man who worked at an office supply store who was ordered to throw away perfectly good items. Since Kruse and a friend began diving, they've found everything from filing cabinets to software, silverware and furniture.
