Scrap metal recycling for electricians

Electricians use a wide variety of metal components in their work, all of which create waste. The average electrical wiring or maintenance project may result in cable and conduit off-cuts, dead electric motors and unused copper wire.

H&S Metals understands that due to the physical and intensive nature of electrical work, you may not have considered the benefits of recycling your scrap metal. But scrap metal recycling can provide you with an extra source of income and enable you to get rid of excess materials conveniently and safely.

How does scrap metal recycling for electrician’s work?

Available to trade, industrial and commercial electricians, our scrap metal recycling service transforms both ferrous and non-ferrous metals at our two Hampshire-based scrapyards.

What types of metal can be scrapped?

As an electrician, it’s likely your work will produce scrap cable, electric motors and copper wire, all of which we can take off your hands and turn into a new reusable resource.

At H&S Metals, we ensure our scrap metal prices are some of the best around, based on the international market and set to give you a great return.

To give you an idea of the estimated prices you can expect, we currently pay £1,200-£1,600 per tonne for household cable, £400-£800 for aluminium electric motors, £2,300-£3,500 for copper electric motors and £3,000 –£4,500 for copper wire (dry bright). You can see a full list of our estimated scrap metal prices here.

What’s more, our scrap metal collection service can come to you. Request a collection for your scrap metal from anywhere within Hampshire and we’ll pick it up with a transit van, skip lorry, roll on roll off bin or hiab.
