What is the product quality?

This material must:

  • be pure and free from any and all kinds of impurities;
  • have a bright and shiny red color (the greenish parts are not acceptable and neither are tin-coated wiring;
  • be stripped of its insulation;
  • be free of any burnt or corroded areas;
  • be separated from any other kinds of copper wire.

If you adhere to these requirements when selecting and storing stripped bare bright wire, scrap yards will likely offer the highest price for your Cu scrap and its class will not be downgraded. The purity and surface quality of copper wire is important in the recycling process since it ensures that conductivity and high voltage are withstanding.

Why is it recycled?

Copper is an essential metal in the production of many electronic devices and electric machinery that we use on an everyday basis. Wire recycling has obvious environmental benefits because Cu products are long-lasting and durable.
Bringing a large amount of copper scrap from construction or dismantling jobs to sell to a scrap yard will be financially advantageous. Scrap yards in their turn collect the wire and then forward it to other scrap recycling facilities for melting, casting, and future reuse for manufacturing products containing copper.
