Assuming you have proof of ownership, a Fencing company who does a lot of wood fences might be interested. 4x4 and 6x6 rough cut cedar (especially if the more rot-resistant Western Red Cedar) 6' posts retail at about $25 and $45-50 respectively. Peeled but unmilled ones around $20 and $40 each respectively for 4" and 6" - exact value depending on your locale of course. But either way, you likely have about $5,000-13,000 retail worth of posts there, assuming they are in decent condition, so you should be able to get a good few thousand $ at least even if moved at wholesale value.

Of course you could also list them on Craigslist or a similar locale sale website. You might also check with local lumberyards and farm supply stores who might buy them moff you for maybe about 25-50% of retail value.

Or if you just want them gone, pile them near the sidewalk/street (assuming you live on a moderately travelled street or road) with a big FREE sign on them and I can pretty much guarantee they will vanish within a day or two - probably within hours.
