For equipment that can be moved, and is still vaguely useful, send them 
a certified letter, explaining that you will be donating all this 
equipment to X (my personal suggestion is Cymru) upon a certain date not 
too far in the future, if arrangements are not made to retrieve it.

Once you've received the signature back, and the date arrives, donate it.

Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are,
by definition, not smart enough to debug it.
