There are many useful things in all the items listed previously. The things I have found are: motors, gears, wires, circuit boards, LCDs, LEDs, and switches.

You can also find many rc cars although a lot of times they do not have their remotes. But they can still be very useful.

When you get into the car their are usually many useful things. Although on occasion somebody has already taken parts from it. The things I have found are: gearboxes, wheels, motors, circuit boards, wires, and gears.

There are many other things you could salvage parts from. I've gotten fans, a walking toy dinosaur, and a walking dog.
