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

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.
