If there is an “e-waste” drop-off spot where you live, I highly recommend looking there.
In my town, there is always a gigantic pile of electronics stuff, dead PCs included. I’ve dumped quite a few there myself. It’s very hard not taking things back with me - receivers that probably just have blown fuses, so many misc. computer bits, and a staggering array of flat screen TVs (last time I counted at least 30, and this is a relatively small town).
The rules may prohibit poking around or removing stuff, but it never hurts to ask…
