Gent is a city in Belgium.
There is supposed to be several factory-dumps close to the city where you can pick up all sorts of wood and other material. People in Gent just go to the factory and ask for the left-overs. Workers in the factories are supposedly very willing to help. Examples are furniture-factories and carpet-factories.
Local skippers often go to the small store at the end of Diksmuidestraat, among others. (Last checked: September 2012)
