Copper Wire – Unstripped / Insulated

Copper is a reddish-brown metal commonly found in wires. Thin, copper wires like telecommunication wires, computer wires, extension wires, data wires, cables, and wires with multiple insulations inside other insulations, need not be stripped. However, it has to be free of aluminium wire (silver-white metal), plastic attachments, adaptors, and power plugs. Use a wire cutter to remove the ends, attachments, and plugs, leaving only the insulated, unstripped copper wire.

As recyclables are based on their prevailing market rates at the time of collection, it would be best to give us a call to check on their prices. Pick ups of recyclables can be arranged as well.
