Why Search For Scrap Metal When They Are Around You?

Do you want to spend less time searching for scrap metal and more time recycling them? Here are some quick tips.

Copper
Copper is a non-ferrous metal used in our daily domestic and industrial activities including utensils, air-condition, machine parts, motors, cables, radiators and automobiles that  form a part of many machines, equipment and appliances in the form of wires.  So, the next time you think of replacing an old AC with new one,  do take it to a recycle yard. Other than this, you can find copper in plumbing pipes which many homes have in abundance.

Aluminum
Aluminum is another non-ferrous metal that is a component used in items like used beverage cans, light fitting panel  and window panes. So, the next time you plan to send an item like a beverage can  in the dump yards, try taking it to the scrap yard instead. You will know how a useless beverage can  also help to earn some money. Apart from the items mentioned above, you can find aluminum aplenty in and around construction areas.

Stainless steel
Stainless steel is  also recyclable. Stainless steel is easily found in things like pipes, tubes,  bridges and tanks.. It means that stainless steel is available in great quantities. It also means that since its presence is abundant, recycling stainless steel  scrap metal is widely accepted.

Recycling Metal Scrap – Copper Wires


For any scrapper, possession of copper is as good as holding gold. Copper is obviously way cheaper than gold, however its abundance makes it a valuable metal. In the metal scrap industry, very few metals provide more profit than copper when recycled.

Copper is always booming

Scrap metal industry is a booming sector and one of the most lucrative metals is copper. If you are looking to earn money out of selling copper scrap you should know which copper scrap dealers to get in touch with. Look for the reliable ones; check the company’s past record and enquire about its services and fair monetary policies through its past and current customers.

When handling copper wires…

Copper pipes and copper wires are made from same material. However, wire scrapping is little more tedious as the wire is more intricately made. It is also covered with insulation.

What state is your copper material in? The answer will play a key role in determining how much can you expect out of the sale or recycling transaction.

It is undeniable that a clean copper wire that is devoid of impurities will give you the highest return as one of the fortune metals.

Many tend to destroy the rubber insulation on the copper wire with fire to avoid the difficulty of scraping it off. However, burning rubber is not recommended as it impacts the environment badly and is also illegal in some places.

Last but not the least, burning the rubber insulation degrades the value you will receive on recycling the thus placing your item in the lowest value category.
