I hope I am in the right section, but is is worth taking these apart for parts?
The bulk of the discussion here seems to be about actual computer parts and such, but I am trying all leads.
My company will be coming into a moderately large supply of older ADBs, ~10000, 500 gig DVRs and standards alike. I would rather not simply scrap them to a yard if I can help it.

The motherboards are usually peripheral.
Then the hard drive boards on top of that.
Some good value there

Also you can toss any power cables that have a brick in them on ebay. Usually they’ fetch around $3-$5 each; fair bit of quantity there in value too.

Does it matter that the HDDs are password locked AV models?

You’d just be sending the boards ideally so no. That doesn’t matter.
Scrap the drives itself locally. The payment ratio always works out better that way
