Please do not throw away your old computers thinking they are junk. There is a group of collectors waiting to gather these old machines and put them to good use. It's our hobby and passion. Many of us grew up with these machines, and probably started our careers with these "junky" old computers. I for one started with an Radio Shack Color Computer, which I still use today. It only has 64K, but I still find it useful and fun. Everyone on this list has the same feelings about classic computers, and would like to see these machines preserved.
If you have an old computer to get rid of, please look through this list and if anyone is close, please contact them. We will be more than happy to arrange for pickup and more importantly, make sure they get a good home. We are not in this for profit, once again for all of us it is a hobby and a passion.
On the same note, we are also interested in any documentation for our classic machines. That old book or schematics you are going to throw away, might just hold the key that some of us are looking for. This is just as important as saving the machines themselves. If you have any documentation and are wanting to get rid of it, contact someone on this list.
