Twice a year,When everyone puts there junk out on the foot path for the council to pickup,it's every man for himself

Last time i got about 6 PC's and heaps of random electronics

Nice find,i think the best puter i have found was a 1.8Ghz Athlon,512mb RAM,60gb hardrive and an nVidia 7300GT.

The council is what we call our local government. Twice a year we can put whatever trash out on the footpath that the weekly garbos don't take. Council comes along and collects it all. We've picked up working push bikes, computer desks and if you're so inclined, countless towers and monitors. It's effectively a free for all.
