Hello Lee,

Mixed wire ($0.65/lb) is basically a collection of various types of wire, including but not limited to ribbon cable, telephone cable, power cables and speaker wire.

If it is considered a "wire" it can be included in this grade. You can leave the plug-in ends attached or cut them off, it will not effect the price.

The wires cannot have a transformer attached (power supply) however.

If you do cut the ends, check if they have gold plated connector pins. If so, we will purchase just the connector end at $0.85/lb.

Here is a picture of an example of mixed wire:

Christmas lights prolly would qualify as mixed wire but you might need to remove the bulbs.

The thing to look at is can you come out ahead after the shipping costs?

Christmas lights I would sell to your local scrap yard. They may pay one rate if you leave all the bulbs and connectors on, but clip those off with a pair of nippers and you will have insulated copper wire which would likely pay more. If you have a wire stripping tool such as one from TNT Tooling or Zoda Tools, you can strip the insulation off and sell the bare wire as #2 copper.
