Category 5 (cat 5) cable is an insulated twisted pair cable that is often used for wiring computer networks and communications equipment. Cat 5 is easily identified by its PVC coating, which may even have the words “Category 5” or “Category 5e” printed right on it. Because the interior twisted pairs are made of coated copper wire, cat 5 recycling can earn you some cash at the scrapyard.

Though cat 5 cable scrap has a lower value than clean copper wire, recycling it can bring a great deal of value to your business. At Gardner Metals, we help electricians, network technicians, remodelers and other businesses recycle scrap metal all the time. We can work with your facility to provide options for cat 5 cable collection and transporting, along with competitive quotes.

What Is the Current Cat 5 Cable Scrap Value?

The cat 5 wire scrap price that you get will depend on the market price of copper. Because prices fluctuate, we recommend calling ahead for a quote to determine whether your haul is worth the trip.
