They have regular collections here in Ottawa, I was at the
last one and saw them haul a way a large dumpster filled to
the top. I managed to get 2 old MAC's from the bin, but
there were machines in there that I'd never seen before. It
was another push that got my collection growing and me
started with a program to get the
not-so-classic-but-reusable machines refurbished and out to
people to keep them running till they do become classics.
