We all know copper for its use in pennies, wires and pipes. Even the Statue of Liberty herself contains copper! In fact, it's the third most used industrial metal in the U.S. But did you know that it can be recycled? Copper recycling has been around almost as long as copper itself. It also helps reduce carbon emissions and is a great part of our economic lifecycle.
At Gardner Metal Recycling, we buy copper scrap of all types including #1 and #2 copper pipe, high and low grade insulated copper wire scrap and more. Basically, if it’s copper, we’ll take it!
How Much Is Copper Scrap Worth?
The value of copper scrap depends on many factors. Like most metals, copper recycling prices are affected by market forces and may change in as little as a few hours. If there is more demand for copper, or if it is harder to get from other sources, copper scrap may be more worth more.
The quality of your copper, its condition and where it came from also impacts its worth and how much you’ll recieve for copper recycling. High grade copper is clean, is not alloyed with any other metal, and has no coatings, insulation or paint on its surface. This kind of copper is the most valuable. However, copper scrap is always in demand, so it pays to recycle copper scrap regardless of its condition.
