Prices for wire scrap vary. Call for more information
Since the 1980’s, the explosion of new technology every year has warranted the need for new wires to accommodate all the new devices we bring into our home. But what happens when something new comes out and your existing wires are now obsolete and suddenly just collecting dust or plain don’t work anymore?
Rather than keeping potentially dangerous old wires around, bring your scrap to us and we will identify the type of wiring you have, including insulated copper wire scrap or any other variety, and a fair price so you can turn your scrap into cash. We will do the work of sorting your recyclable wires and any other scrap materials on-site so you can sit back and relax.
Our Simple Scrap Recycling Process
Not sure where to bring your wire scrap in Kansas City?
At Langley Recycling, we make sure that your top priority of getting the best price for your scrap wire is ours as well, but we don’t stop there. When you recycle and sell with us, our team will work hard to treat you fairly and guarantee a quick and easy process – all while reducing our unnecessary waste to keep our local environment healthy.
Have something other than wire that you would like to sell? We are happy to accept a variety of common scrap items including copper, aluminum, catalytic converters, batteries, and more! We are also prepared to pay you for larger recyclables like stainless steel scrap and junk cars; just bring your scrap by and we will sort it and quote you the best possible price for everything.
There is a big difference between your standard equipment wires and power cords and cables, but all are recyclable through us. While a wire is a singular line utilizing the power of your electrical outlets for one sole purpose, you can consider your cables as bundles of wires all grouped together in one insulated sheath to provide the higher amount of voltage necessary to operate your equipment.
In most wires, cables, and cords, you’ll find that the electrical wires are coated in a shielding or insulation made of copper; this is to protect the electricity running through the wire and protect you from potential electrocution. When you hear the phrase “live wire,” that means a wire has somehow lost its insulation; this copper is the main reason wire is such a highly prized recyclable scrap.
Scrap wire recycling is more common than you may think! Many of the wires and cables you use each day contain the vital copper that we love to accept, including things like phone and power cords, home appliance and equipment wires, computer-related cables like your ethernet or speaker cords, and so much more.
Regardless of the purpose it served during its lifetime, your recyclable wire can be appraised here at Langley Recycling, no matter how much or how little you bring to the table. If you’re ever unsure if your wire is recyclable, feel free to bring it in for an evaluation and we will let you know while on-site
It’s not necessary, but we won’t complain if you do! Although removing the plastic portion will result in less overall weight, you may receive more for your scrap because it will require less work on our end to get to the valuable copper underneath. By leaving the plastic on, you can be sure that the waste will be properly disposed of rather than tossed away with your trash at home.
Definitely! Not only can the copper inside your wires be repurposed, saving the environment from unnecessary CO2 production, but you are also ensuring that the plastic shielding on your cables isn’t ending up in a random landfill or worse, the oceans.
