Nice finds I wish I could find stuff like that by me but sadly there's no ewaste places anywhere near me and for the 6 years I've owned my house I've yet to see any computers or come to think of it any electronics out to the curb for garbage either.
In New Jersey? There has to be.
edit: a quick search shows these are some places. There are bound to be a lot more since this was just the top search result. You have to contact these places and offer to buy things (for more than they get as a per pound recycling profit - don't worry it's cheap) once any hard drives or personal data is removed. Not all places will agree, but some will. It really helps if you know someone or a friend of a friend/family works there. The best place I've found is when cities do drop-offs in a specific location -- usually once a year. Most are just an unsupervised 40yd open ended dumpster that people set stuff in. Local dumps also have an electronics recycling section -- some allow taking stuff, some don't.
