In the last week I have witnessed two separate instances of analog technology abandonment. I suspect the perpetrators were hoping that someone would adopt their unwanted analog. One pile of video tapes was around the corner from a row of dumpsters. The box of albums was on a street corner planter.
Maybe putting up a sign that said "Free!" or "Please Take!" might have helped. As it was, all but the most dedicated scrounger would wonder whether he or she were part of a stupid human video.
