Sounds like you're describing scrounging, or at least that's what electronics hobbyists call it. Here's an example:

I have acquired a ton of good stuff over the years. I found some busted stereos and got an isolation transformer out of each. High quality too--nothing beats quality for F.R.E.E. as opposed to paying an arse load of it new and letting useable stuff go to landfill.


That's right, Bixby Snyder folks.
