Sell Copper Metal Scrap For Recycling

Copper has been used for thousands of years in part because copper wire scrap can be 100% recycled. Products we use today that contain traces of copper are potentially the result of recycled material from the past. Thanks to the fact that it doesn’t degrade, it allows us to infuse copper into products for an extended period.

  • Mining copper from virgin ore is an extensive process. It requires a significant amount of time, energy, and fossil fuels. Taking the time to recycle copper from various objects requires approximately 85% less energy than mining. Furthermore, the value of copper scrap is about 90% of the price of newly mined copper.
  • The process of refining copper results in the emission of harmful gases and dust in the air. Not only does this affect people nearby, but it harms the environment and is a contributor to climate change. Recycling eliminates those emissions and the amount of solid waste from the smelting process.
  • You can find copper almost everywhere. It’s in buildings, appliances, and many other objects. Even the smallest amount of copper can be recycled, eradicating the need to use landfills. Discarding objects with copper in them at a landfill is wasting good material with the potential to be recycled. It places a demand on mining, which in turn increases harmful emissions.
