The Centre for Computing History might be interested in the Mac clone.

It’s old stuff, but the Sun systems and Digital storage array have an attractive resale/spares premium on eBay listings and the Umax system has collectability value, so it seems a shame to have to take them to the tip. Some of the PC recycling schemes I’ve found only take kit from organisations (understandably). Does anybody have any suggestions?
