recycling old electronic junk : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

Are things like old VCRs, monitors, cd-rom drives, mini-vacs, handheld blenders, etc. good for salvaging parts to make robots and stuff? I have some of these. Does anyone try to recycle the resistors, capacitors, motors, etc. from these things? Anybody got advice on scrounging through junkyards?

I would have to say that if this stuff is in the junkyard, it is probably because it is junk. resistors and other minor electronic components go for a few cents at any local radio shack. The more expencive components are probably shot if found in a junkyard.
