That will be sad, however. Can't they be donated to interested people
instead? For the same price as the scap value or something?
(Heck, in Sweden that would mean paying for someone to take them, since it
nowadays cost money to scrap old computers, the going rate is something
like 60 cents per kilo, or 30 cents per pound...)

Update just junked 2.4 metric tons of computer equipment. It wasn't
cheap... :-/
