Introduction to Dumpster Diving

Whether you spawn into the map at your job location, the Tram, or anywhere else on the Virgo-Erigone, Maintenance will have an array of trash piles to dig from. Just look for any Occupation non-specific Maintenance door, otherwise known as Maintenance Common, and you'll be on your way to digging through junk!

What You'll Need

  • A Character With Arms - No, seriously. If you don't have hands, you can't actually hold anything you get out of these trash piles!
  • Maintenance Access - Seriously, anyone can access Maintenance... even Visitors...
  • An Appetite for the adventure! ... and mice.

Things to Keep in Mind


When searching a trash pile, note that each pile can only be searched once. If anyone is hiding in one, you have a chance to find them. Once a trash pile has been searched, a message will pop up telling you that it has already been searched. There is a single pool of Rare items that can only be found once by anyone on the server. All other groups can be found at any point in the round.

((Note: piles are locked to your account, so if you loot as one character and come back as another trash piles you've already looted will still be locked.))


You WILL find contraband in the trash eventually! While it is your duty to turn contraband in to Security, you are not obligated. However, this does not mean that Security should patrol Maintenance or instigate characters about what they found in the trash (i.e. Claiming that the item was "stolen" from the trash.) and detain them. Unless you want to be Shitcurity and have everyone hate you as a player, not as a character. If you use said contraband and you start convulsing in Maintenance, there's no one else to blame but yourself. There are also a few weapons that you can find in the trash littered about, but make sure you have the weapon permit first!
