You can’t bring in shiny new hardware, as there is no space left. Your space has become a hardware museum filled with junk.


Create a pile/stack where you put that old, unused hardware on. Let everybody take from it. Anything left within a while should be thrown away. But make sure you announce that step not only once, but at least three times with an escalation system.
