The blue StorageWorks racks with HSZxx (probably HSZ80) is a 
dual-redundant RAID controller with SCSI disks, using SCSI to connect 
to the system(s)

There are 3rd party resellers who would likely buy that stuff from you.

For example, check out eli.com's web site for the retail pricing they 
get on various StorageWorks kit pieces: 

How much you could get depends on where you are, where the resellers 
are, and how much they're willing to spend to come get the stuff.

Obviously they have a market for this stuff, or they wouldn't keep 
buying (and selling) it.

Where is the equipment located?
