My local grade school actually is actively seeking such old hardware, 
although they're generally going for 3yr old corporate PCs and servers, 
rather than our 6+yr old cast offs.  There are plenty of other 
organizations which will take them.  Off hand, I know of three companies 
in the local area that will take old machines for free, and either 
repair/refurb them for donation, savage them for spare parts, or send 
them off to the proper recycling company.
