What to do with old OS install media? [closed]

I'm doing an end-of-the-year clean up and found some old OS install media - Mac OS X 10.3.5, Windows 2000, Windows XP. It seems wrong to just throw them out but they can't have a home with me anymore.

If you don't like having them lying around, rip them to ISO files and save them to an external hard drive or something, then dispose of the media (or reuse it in an interesting way like ~quack mentioned). Chances are you may want to play with it for nostalgia value some day, then you can easily load it up on a virtual machine from the ISO at any time.
