Then there is the lo-tech various sized holes in a bit of timber with screws used as the cutting point.

I did like contrast between gloved and non-gloved hands with the two vids. I'm a gloved person, BTW...

Having stripped the plastic off, how do you dispose of it?

Quite, just sell the scrap cable with the insulation still on it to the scrappy and let them deal with the plastic.

from here the price of bright wire in June this year was £3800/tonne and insulated wire was £1100/tonne
So for the price of a bit of wood, some gloves and a screw, as mentioned above, there is some money to be made. Plus labour of course. Where there's muck there's brass.

when I was a wee nipper , the old man used to bring home every single yard of cable ripped out from the weeks jobs.
I would sit on the floor on a sunday while watching old sit coms and strip off all the insulation using a home made cable stripper and / or a pair of diagonal side cutters.
Those were the good old days

Thirty or so quid for a dust bin full of cable with its insulation still on, after you have stood on it a couple of times.

That's everything, regardless of conductor size or length, so every piddly little bit of cable that wouldn't be worth stripping. No time spent stripping it and no plastic to dispose of.

I've seen the stripping wheels powered by a drill and the like at shows, they are not worthwhile in my opinion.
