Scrap Wire

WHO WE BUY SCRAP WIRE FROM: Scrap wire can come from several different sources, but the people who do business with us most are part of the electrical and general contracting trades. These can be individual trades people or virtually any size contracting company.

RECYCLED WIRE 101: Wire is a very wide ranging term. But in the recycling industry, wire is predominantly the basic material used in telephone and data cables, and as conductors in electric power transmission and heating. And, as you can imagine, recycling scrap wire is one of the scrap metal recycling industry’s key activity areas.

Not all metals and metallic alloys possess the physical properties necessary to make useful wire. The metals must first and foremost be ductile and tensile, the quality of which determines the specific use of the wire itself.

At Peel Scrap Metal Recycling Ltd, we recycle a great deal of wire and cable and have two types of scrap wire recycling machinery ”“ a wire and cable granulating system known as a chopping line and wire and cable strippers.

RECYCLING COPPER & RECYCLING ALUMINUM WIRE: The metals most suitable for wire are almost equally ductile. These are platinum, silver, copper, aluminum and gold. But the most commonly used in industrial applications are copper and aluminum.

Depending on the specific application, copper wire can be coated with various types of materials or plated with other metals, such as tin, nickel, and silver to handle different temperatures, provide lubrication or allow easier access to the copper for recycling.

Usually, electrical wires are covered with insulating materials, such as plastic, rubber-like polymers, or varnish. Two or more conductors may be wrapped concentrically and separated by insulation. The conductors may also be further protected with substances like paraffin, preservative compounds, lead, or aluminum or steel armour.

THE KINDS OF SCRAP WIRE WE PURCHASE: The wire we are most likely to purchase contains either copper or aluminum. The various types of wire can include BX Cable • Teck Cable • High Voltage Cable • Romex (or House Wire) • No 1 Insulated Copper • No 2 Insulated Copper • Aluminum Wire • ACSR • Power Cable • Communications Cable • Elevator Cable

Copper & aluminum cable and wire recycling is one of the key areas of the scrap metal recycling industry.
