Over the years I have collected quite a few cables.
They came with the 2 computers, 3 cameras, routers, etc I've had over the years.
Of course I can just throw them away, but I wonder if I can't make some money out of them.
Are there places where they want to buy your old cables or can I recycle them or strip the copper?
Most of the cables are for video or power cables.

Does anyone have any good ideas?

Honestly, it wouldn't be worth it to sell them/strip them for copper. Either throw them away or just keep them in a box somewhere. I have probably 3 or 4 boxes full of cables of various different kinds that have been useful throughout the years. Never hurts to have extra cable IMO.

This cable sculptures are not mine... ..just a example. But I do things like this for real when I have some colorful cables around (I prefer those telephone cables for this )
