With the highest electrical conductivity rating across all non-precious metals, copper has been used in electrical wiring and cable conductor manufacturing for more than a century. Through advances in telecommunications and digital technology, the use of electricity continues to rapidly expand. Copper wire is a regularly sought after material for scrapping and recycling.
Electronic devices of all kinds include copper wiring and conductors, such as computers, televisions, and phones. Large household appliances like dishwashers, laundry units, and refrigerators also contain insulated copper wires. Additionally, smaller appliances ranging from coffee makers, toaster ovens, and blenders also include copper wiring in their circuitry.
While not every scrapping facility will take just any type of copper wire, Metalico accepts different varieties, from insulated copper wiring to bare stripped wires. If you are not sure about what kind of copper wiring you have or you just have an enormous pile, our team will gladly sort through your collection and compensate you fairly. For larger quantities of copper wire, we can provide scrap container services to ease transportation arrangements!
