Make Quick Money by Recycling Copper Wire

You can make real money by recycling copper wire you have on hand. Recycling this valuable commodity means instant payment by the pound when you bring copper wire or other copper scraps into Scrap Mart from anywhere in the greater St. Louis region. That copper wire can be renewed and recycled, again and again.

Copper has enduring value because it is in demand for construction uses. It swiftly transfers electric current from the power grid to most any light switch, hidden in the walls around us. Scrap copper is readily melted down and formed into plumbing pipes and other products for home and industry. This creates a constant demand for this practical material, leading to consistent payouts when you bring copper in for recycling.

Why should you personally recycle copper wire?

  • The most popular reason we hear about is to benefit from our quick, generous payouts. But if that’s not enough to motivate you, we have a few other compelling factors to consider.
  • Recycling copper wire also keeps our environment a healthy place. Working copper mines still exist, but the sheer effort of ore extraction and the toxic damage to local environments proves costly — far more costly than copper recycling both in terms of current health effects and unknown future impacts.
  • Recycled copper keeps material costs affordable, too. Your quick trip down to our metal recycling station helps decrease the cost of copper for all new industrial and residential applications, including street lighting, keeping our communities livable and safe.
  • Because copper is so popular to use, during any building demolition you are highly likely to come across copper wire, plumbing or any other items.
