When I quit contracting I contacted a former tech of mine (good guy usually) who has started a little alarm business on the side working for friends and family. He is a priniciapl alarm tech for the local county government. I told him to come over and stock up. I'd give him tons of stuff he can use dirt cheap. His response was to tell me to send him an itemized inventory with prices. I declined and most of the merchandise is still inboxes on shelves. I did throw away thousands of dollars in sound and phone equipment that was just taking up space, but now I am starting to begrudge the space (and inventory value for tax purposes) the ramaining stock is taking up. I may post a picture of the dumpster the next time I cull inventory, but I'm not going to spend time and money to send it to anybody. Its literally cheaper to put it in the dumpster.
And for anybody who thinks they will be clever and go dumpster diving... its private property and my dumpster has a lock. It would involve several criminal offenses to be so clever, and my surveillance system still works just fine.
