Double trash score!

PowerPC Macs - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
I do utility survey work in the streets, I am constantly looking for discarded Macs. My last career was EMS, so for the last 34 years I have been driving around the streets. In all that time the only discarded Macs I found were a 6100 and 7100 in the late 90's.

Today I spied a silver Mac tower, I could see it was a G5. It was next to a dumpster in a renovation site, I asked the workers and they said "enjoy". There was a pile of stuff and under the G5 was a 17" acrylic display. This was obviously out in the weather and the inner plastic air deflector and HD were missing. Not expecting much.

Not even a block away I see a weathered 24" aluminum iMac out by a recycle bin but not on the sidewalk. More renovation, more "enjoy".

They both booted!

G5: Powermac 7,3 Dual 2.0, 3.5GB ram, refurb.

iMac: 2009 2.93 C2D. Missing the glass screen cover, and the LCD is destroyed.
