I've ended up with a nice pile of copper cabling - mainly CAT5e and some 100 pair / 25 pair CAT3. Very heavy so wouldn't want to move it myself - does anyone have any experience with metal recyclers in the Auckland Central area who might be able to come and grab it?

IME the payout on no power sized insulated cables is not worth it. And I have heard that some places will not take it if it;s burned off either.
