In addition to being one of the most sought after metals on Earth, copper is one of the many scrap metals that we recycle at our scrap yard in Lawrence, MA. Copper is so popular because it has a lot of desirable properties that other metals lack. It conducts heat and electricity very effectively, and it’s malleability can be put to use in a variety of different products.
It’s conductivity makes it a popular choice to use in electrical wiring. It can also be used to make pipes for plumbing, cooking materials, and even roofing materials! It’s the third most used industrial metal, coming in just behind aluminum and iron. It isn’t just similar to aluminum because of its popularity; copper can also be used to form a lot of different alloys. Two of the most popular examples of this are bronze, made with copper and tin, and brass, which swaps out tin for zinc.
If you’re looking to find copper to sell to our scrap yard, you’ll typically find it in the form of wiring, sheets, or tubing in the different applications mentioned above. If you have old appliances lying around, you’ll be able to make some money off of them and be environmentally conscious at the same time.
