Rubbish Dump Day, Saturday, September 2nd!
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on September 2, 2023, 12:00 am NST

Welcome to the 1st Saturday of the month: Rubbish Dump Day!

In April 2022, TNT updated the Rubbish Dump to increase the drop rate of "rubbish" eligible for the avatar. (And we've even seen some Hidden Tower items pop up that weren't previously confirmed as prizes!)

The Rubbish Dump is special in that items dropped there appear after a Neopian refreshes the dump. (In other words, refreshing the page gives you the chance to "donate" some rubbish to the queue.) The more people visiting and refreshing, the more rubbish dropped, and the more opportunities there are for avatar items to appear!

Starting now, and continuing all day, here's how you can gather and participate:

If you DON'T have the avatar...
  • Visit the Rubbish Dump in Meridell and refresh to generate rubbish!
  • Claim up to 8 pieces of rubbish to clear the way for more items to appear. (And make sure not to claim anything from the Money Tree or Second-Hand Shoppe... it's 10 items max from all 3 locations combined!)
  • To be safe from accidental clicks, save your last 2 rubbish claims for when an avatar item pops up. (You can claim up to 10 items from the Rubbish Dump per day.)
  • Review our guide to familiarize yourself with which items are eligible for the avatar.

If you DO have the avatar...
  • Visit the Rubbish Dump in Meridell and refresh to help generate rubbish! Even if you have the avatar, refreshing helps generate more "donations" that will show up later. (And that means more opportunities for avatar items to pop up!)
  • Claim up to 10 pieces of rubbish to help clear the way for avatar-eligible items to appear.
  • Be kind and leave the cheaper avatar-eligible items (like the Fading Bottled Faeries) for those who need the avatar! We won't mind, however, if you try sniping a Dung Catapult.

The more the merrier, so share this post with your Neofriends and guildmates!

As you participate, let us know in the comments what junk—or treasures—you've seen or picked up! And let us know if you get the avatar so we can celebrate with you.

Can't get enough rubbish? Mark your calendars and join us on the first Saturday of next month—October 7th—for our next Rubbish Dump Day!

A great day to grab 10 free junk items for the upcoming Charity Corner-esque event!
roshchodesh, September 2, 2023 11:08 AM NST
I'm gonna be creative in my choices of detritus, like Apophis324

Finally got the avatar with a Faded Bottled Dark Faerie! Thanks everyone for keeping it moving. Gonna be thinking about the Darigan Paint Brush I was a second too late for, though

Fading Bottled Earth Faerie got me the avatar; thank you.

Just imagine. If the Charity Corner event thing is going to be permanent (which most of us at JellyNeo seem to hope for), JN might never have to host this kind of event. Which is.. kind of sad!

I tried for about 3 hours mid-neopets morning. I saw...
3 silver paintbrushes
2 blue pant brushes
1 darigan paintbrush
7 bottled faeries
6 petpets

and I was too slow for every single one.
Is it my reflexes or my Internet connection? oh well... I suppose the avatar will still be available next month!

Beebuzzbuzz, that is very unlucky! Better luck next time!

Happy for tamarinds and isabelle888253 though!
dr_tomoe, September 3, 2023 2:08 PM NST
Well, maybe next month :K

Finally got my avatar last month. Thanks to all those who are pulling the junk items. I Just did my 10 junk snags to help others. GL!
