- Mar 9, 2013Doug,
What is your relationship with your local recycle place? I've got one here
in town, but they don't seem very interested in keeping an eye out for old
stuff. The manager changed over a while back and I thought I was in (the
prior guy didn't give a crap), but now I'm beginning to wonder. Did get a
few things...but only because I was lucky the day I dropped by and they were
laying around (some middle-aged Mac stuff). They also had some of the
old-school all-in-one Mac's, but they took them around back and destroyed
them to be sure there weren't hard drives in them...rather than investigate
to find out they didn't (apparently they require a LONG torx driver to open
them up properly). The only things they leave sitting out for sale are
new-ish computers that they've cleaned up and have for sale, and some
monitors and accessories. Does your place have these boxes sitting around
for anyone to come in and look through? Or do you ask? Or do they save
stuff for you? Just curious how this works for other folks and what I might
should try to do on my end to attempt to purchase some of the old stuff from
them rather than it going in the recycle bin...

local surplus place, I found:
