Copper recycling

Copper recycling is regarded as a highly lucrative scrap metal in the recycling business due to the fact copper is 100% recyclable. Copper doesn’t drop any of its quality through the recycling process making it as valuable as freshly excavated or mined copper. Copper is often recycled and re used endlessly and can have the identical characteristics and performance as new copper.  Copper recycling  has been in existence for centuries, even beginning from the Middle Ages. During that time, bronze cannons were melted and recycled for other products. Even old church bells were being recycled to be used as cannons.

Copper is the third most recycled metal behind aluminum and iron. Copper is the best electrical  thermal conductor, it is malleable, durable and antimicrobial.  These properties make it irreplaceable in our modern society.  The most widespread use for copper is for electro-mechanical purposes like wires and power cords because of its high conductivity, flexibility and lack of breakage after production.
