1.       Elimination of Landfills Costs:

Burying of copper in landfills is not only monetarily expensive but also causes irreversible environmental damage. This is because it affects the groundwater resources and the soil too. Thus, if copper is recycled, it would help to avoid this damage. Recycling can save landfill space as well. It also protects the fossil fuels from any kind of potential damage that can be caused if copper is dumped into earth.

2.       Conservation of Environment:

Refining and mining of copper releases gases like sulfur dioxide which is harmful to nature. Recycling however would bring about a reduction in the releasing of these gases. It also saves a lot of natural resources oil and gas, coal, etc.

3.       Economically beneficial:

Extraction and mining of copper consumes a lot of capital. On the other hand, when copper is recycled, it not only saves money but also retains up to 90% of the original cost. It is virtually impossible to differentiate original copper from the recycled one. Many products of high quality can hence be produced through recycled copper. Apart from this, it also prevents the cost of copper from rising in the world market.

Copper is a metal that is known to retain its properties irrespective of the number of times it is recycled. Copper scrap metal also fetches a pretty good price and is considered to be highly valuable in the market. If the proper steps like cleaning and separating of the metal are followed copper scrap can be sold at a very high profit rate.
