Scrap Copper Recycling is a Good Investment

Copper is not a renewable resource. Although the USA is self-sufficient, reusing copper contributes half the amount of copper that goes into new products.

Recycling Copper helps:

  • Preserve existing copper resourcesSave other non-renewable resources such as fossil fuels
  • Using salvaged copper requires 85% less energy than mining
  • Costs for products containing copper are kept low
