AS400 saved from dumpster (apparently)

This suggests perhaps a hunting theory;

        Put out a big dumpster that says "COMPUTER EQUIPMENT ONLY"
        and set up a small blind perhaps 45' away ( you don't want
        to scare the prey ) then have it manned round the clock by
        collector/volunteers watching. As soon as a truck pulls up
        you swoop down and rescue the gear. You might need some
        decoys so maybe a keyboard and an old terminal in a box
        next to the dumpster would help.
