When it comes to scrap metal recycling, copper is one of the most valuable metals. This is because copper has an infinite recyclable life and is able to be reused in a variety of common items, such as computers, construction and industrial machinery. In this latest blog article, the Action Metal Recyclers team will be sharing more information on the types of copper you can recycle with us.
Copper Bright & Shiny
Copper bright and shiny (also known as Millberry) is the most valuable form of copper to recycle. It includes bare, uncoated and unalloyed wire or cable. Copper bright and shiny must be stripped of insulation and other materials and be free of any paint, impurities or signs of tarnishing.

You can also recycle fridge compressors with us at Action Metal Recyclers. Fridge compressors are found in air conditioning units, refrigerators, and freezers. The reason why fridge compressors are a good item to recycle for copper is because they have copper windings inside a steel shell.
