If you like buying homebrews from AtariAge, you can sell the dirt-common duplicates like Combat and Pac-Man to AtariAge for store credit. Sadly they'll only take black-label games, which means you can't unload your box of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial cartridges this way.

Get a Harmony cart, learn to program your own with bBasic, and make new carts to sell. Re-use those common shells!
One what to do with those duplicate carts...
Alternatively, use them as Decor, but not like this kind of decor: http://www.atariage....of-atari-stuff/
Maybe put a few in a stack and put one of those 2600 joytsick candy tins on top.
I like this thread, I got so many common dupes.
I liken collecting VCS carts to collecting Hockey Cards or Stamps. getting duplicates is near unavoidable.
I don't have the heart to throw them away but I have no other option soon.

Otherwise, there's reusing the cart shells, as others have mentioned. For the games that can't be recycled, giving them away on AtariAge for the cost of shipping -- or if not for free, then at 25-50 cents per cart -- is very good karma.

Until I can reliably back up all my carts using the Retrode I keep a play cart and a keeper cart. At one point I put a microdrive in a combat cart to make it a USB drive..
