I would have raced to the recyclyer so fast that the cable would not have even existed! About three years ago, I got paid to gut a five year-old 10 story office building of all voice and data cabling that originally housed a failed "dot com" company. Not only did I get paid to rip it out, I also got paid to haul it away AND picked up about $10K in scrap value. On top of that, I got paid to go in and recable three floors for a new tenant with new CAT6 cable. What a country!
