Why Recycling Electric Motors Is A Must

 In Motor Recycling

Many people think there is nothing they can do with an old or broken appliance except throw it away.

Stop! Don’t make that mistake! The electric motor inside is recyclable, and you can receive good money for it.

Why Are Electric Motors Recycled?

Chances are you may have never heard about recycling electric motors. Many people think only of bottles, cans, and scrap metal when they consider recyclable goods around their houses. However, inside every electric motor, some metals are valuable and recyclable.

And, we will pay you good money for them.

The valuable and recyclable metals include:

  • Copper
  • Aluminum
  • Iron
  • The steel case around the motor
