If you’re replacing your old kitchen or laundry appliances, then recycling is much more profitable than having your appliance retailer take everything away. Tal Metal is always interested in the scrap copper housed in end-of-life kitchen and laundry appliances.
How to properly prepare your copper to sell
To sell your scrap copper for a good price, it has to be properly prepared. The truth is, selling copper is more lucrative than selling other scrap metals. Whatever the source, and whatever volume you decide to collect, it’s important to understand that the better the quality, the better the prices.
Wherever possible, scrap copper should be separated into grades. Unsorted quantities and the copper inside motors and electronics will sell for a lower price. Clearly, someone who is seriously engaged in metal recycling will have the tools and resources to better prepare scrap copper.
For scrap metal collectors, it’s always important to exercise caution. Safety precautions should be taken, safety goggles should be worn, and heat resistant gloves are recommended. For the average homeowner, it’s probably best to rely on bulk prices for the household scrap copper
