Copper wire commonly known as Shiny Bright or Bare Bright which is clean of any insulation paint or soot is a high grade recycled material. This is often brought in by contractors who work in the electrical fields as well as HVAC and utility subcontractors This high grade material is also clean of any insulating glue or gel leaving only the clean pure copper.
Copper Bar material is often found in Electrical applications and electricians often bring material in to Arundel scrap yard in this form. We have a long standing with Numerous electricians from the single owner operators to the large corporate entities. The scrap yard is happy to work with both offering solutions for each. A good tip for checking bar material is to check the bar for steel reinforcements with a magnet. Rarely but often enough bar material contains a core of steel and is merely plated. This mixed material is worth less than the pure CU material
Copper pipe material is usually brought in by the Plumbing and HVAC contractors as well as homeowners who care about the environment and turning their scrap into cash at our scrap yard. We are proud to work with all people trying to make a cleaner environment and planet. Pipe often has fittings and these are often made of the same material but sometime brass fittings are used. When brass fitting and/or valves are attached to the piping that is considered a mixed metal. Solder is also common on pipe and is also a way that material can be "downgraded" in purity and every effort should be made to "cleanup" the piping for maximum return.
Copper Insulated Wire material is brought in by a mix of contractors but mostly electricians and utility, power company contractors. HVAC contractors and home owners also constitute a percentage of recyclers of insulated wire. While our scrap yards accept most insulated wire it is not priced the same as clean copper wire due to the weight and work that is required.
