Copper Metal Recycling

Recycling metals also known as ‘scrapping metal’ is becoming very popular, a lot of people are not fully aware of the value you can accumulate by not throwing your metal in the bin or in a skip. A large amount of people are putting it aside, giving us a call and having it collected. We weight the metals up on site with portable scales and they make themselves a bit of extra money by simply putting it aside. Private people at home to builders and trades carrying out work, there are more and more opportunities for you to give us a call and recycle your unwanted metals. One metal that you may come across is Copper.

Copper is a ‘non-ferrous metal’ (doesn’t contain iron) , it appears as a orange or green if weathered, we collect copper and recycle it. We collect copper from variety of different people and industries, including construction, manufacturing of electronic products, power generation & transmission, production of vehicles and the production of industry machines. Wiring and plumbing work usually involves a vast amount of copper, it is used in telecommunication products, HVAC systems, plumbing systems, car wiring, car motors, radiators, brakes, connectors, bearings and other parts and pieces of transportation vehicles, but it is mainly used within water piping and electrical products.

Copper is 100% recyclable and nearly 80% of the copper that has been produced is still in use today. Copper can continue to be recycled without any changes to its properties. You can find copper in most things, whether it be in your old car in the wiring or in a pot, pan or kettle in your kitchen. The average person will use 680 kg of copper during a day; using computers, telephones and kitchen appliances, all part of today's standard of living.

Copper recycling is very important within the UK as all copper can be recycled and reused.  For example, it is more energy efficient to produce new products of metal using recycled metals, than it would be to mine and produce new metals. In other word it works out to be cheaper to use recycled metal than having to buy brand new materials. When people recycle their metal, including aluminium, brass, copper, iron and lead they are contributing to the reduction of air pollution and CO2, carbon dioxide emissions. Metal recycling results in the usage of less water; additionally, there is less water polluted overall.

When new products are being built and developed using recycled materials; like copper, aluminium, lead and steel; the need for new metal is therefore reduced. With the demand lower, there is less of a necessity to mine for the raw materials. Landfill waste is overall reduced as well, although there are still many food cans, soft drink cans and other metal products thrown out from households every year that make it into the landfills.

Recycling is so commonly done amongst homeowners, builders, traders, mechanics and others in the construction and mechanical industry. In fact, the need for mining in Europe has been reduced, as 41% of the nation’s copper demands are met by the metal recycling industry.
