"...What happened to home-brewed and breadboarded circuitry? Where's the joy of mechanics and electricity, the creation of real things? Who are the tinkerers with a lust for electronics? We've become a nation of appliance operators, who take pride in what we own rather than what we build..." (Cliff Stoll, from his book 'Silicon Snake Oil,' page 75).
I maintain contact with a large group of people who make a hobby out of collecting and using older stuff. Many will haul away what you may be getting rid of at no charge whatsoever, or there may be some $$ in it for you.
Due to practical considerations (distance from your location, cost of shipping, etc), I cannot guarantee that there will be a home for your old stuff. However, please at least check with me. I may be able to help save your company some trouble and help to keep our landfills that much more empty.

Clench your teeth and grit your fists, gang! An actual Dalek sighting has been confirmed in California, specifically in the Bay Area. One of the Traveling Technoid's spys was fortunate enough to catch a photo of the beastie, shown here in all its tin glory (and reproduced by the kind permission of J.D. 'Illiad' Fraser at User Friendly).
You need look no further than Blue Feather's upstream provider, Drizzle Northwest. I can assure you they're not paying me for advertising. They don't have to, because I'm so impressed with their service and their support that I've chosen to plug for them all on my own.
They offer dialup and DSL. If you want to self-host, no problem! They'll even let you do your own DNS boxes if you want. In the years that Blue Feather has been connected through them, I've seen maybe 6 hours of down time, total. Their tech and setup support is prompt and helpful, something that is indeed rare in these times.
You need not take my word for it, though. Read the testimonials for yourself.
