A while ago I have overheard a conversation.
some guys were talking something about a sort of refund for computers
-or any other devices with a MAC-address
if these devices get shredded because they are too old
or too damaged for a repair.
It was something about reporting deactivated ("terminated") MAC-Adresses 
and getting a bonus for that.
Is that true and where can I get more information on that?

I dont think this is true.

1.) There are more than enough MAC addresses. Each Company who produces 
Ethernet devices has a hughe pool of MACs for a very low price and with 
there own Company prefix.

2.) no one is interested in single isoloted mac adresse. for production 
you want a whole range of macs with your own registered company prefix.
