Where to find and sell scrap copper?

Scrap Metal Collection - Metal Recycling

Scrap copper recycling is an essential aspect of the metal recycling industry. Copper is highly valuable due to its conductivity, malleability, and corrosion resistance, making it a sought-after material in various industries such as construction, electronics, and transportation.

Recycling copper helps conserve natural resources, reduce energy consumption, and minimise environmental impact compared to extracting new copper from ores. The process involves collecting scrap copper from various sources such as discarded electronics, wiring, plumbing fixtures, and industrial machinery.

Once collected, the scrap copper is sorted, cleaned, and processed to remove impurities. Common methods include shredding, granulating, and melting. The purified copper is then formed into ingots, bars, or other shapes for resale to manufacturers.

Metal recycling facilities play a crucial role in managing scrap copper, providing a sustainable solution for both environmental conservation and economic growth. By participating in metal recycling programs and selling scrap copper to reputable recycling centers, individuals and businesses can contribute to resource sustainability and responsible waste management.
