Always sad to hear these things; my college also "tossed" several 5x4 enlargers, rather than sell them. Even offered to buy them, but they refused and they were taken to the tip.
Never understand why educational/government institutes do this - surely some cash is better than none?
Thankfully their last clear-out went to auction, but anything that didn't sell - you guessed it, got dumped. Crazy - I would have happily taken the 10 6x7 enlargers off their hands, but they refused to sell to me; seems some rules aren't made to be flexible, rather idiocy reigns.
Just because someone is educated, does not mean that they can figure out how to get out of a bed in the morning.

I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
