I don't know.  I've had to mine out quite a bit of old cable that was 
abandoned in place to make room for new installations.  Frequently the 
building owners were more than happy to see it disappear in a fashion 
that meant that I didn't have to bill them for my time to pull it out.

Day 1:  Man, we have to move get this crap out of the way so that we can 
do our install.
Day 2:  Meetings.  (While interested parties pull out the cable and 
leave a surprise.)
Day 3:  Hay, I thought you said that we needed to mine something.  I it 
looks like clear haul.  ...and someone left a pull string that we can 
use.  Suckers.  ;-)
