Old ASICs can only mine SHA256 alt coins which are even less economically viable than BTC with the same miner.

Rather than let it sit on the shelf gathering dust or costing you money to maitain network security as a public service. I am offering to run them until they fall apart as I poured profits into a medium alternate energy system which could power old ASICs

You could try merged mining

if there is ever a bitcoin museum you can donate some of them there for display.  Or  Maybe there are some schools that could find a way to put them to use as an educational tool?

If Bitcoin ever becomes as big as some people here believe, then all of these "worthless" ASICs will become rare museum pieces. Kind of like how the first Model T's are today.
