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.


We'll murder them all, amid laughter and merriment...except for the few we take home to experiment!
