About Electrical Cables & wires

Electrical cables are generally composed of a metal conductor inner housed in a plastic insulation. Recycling cables aids in the resource recovery of both the metal and the plastic outer for reuse. The most common metals used are copper and aluminium. When recycled these metals don’t degrade which means they can be recycled indefinitely. Using recycled metals results in a reduction of emissions compared to producing them from raw materials.  Copper, aluminium and oil (from which plastic is derived) are all finite resources, so recycling helps preserve our natural resources.

What Happens When It’s Recycled?

Recycling plants will granulate and then separate the metal from the insulation. Using this process, the plastic is removed and the copper, aluminium or other metals present are separated magnetically for recycling. These metals are then smelted for reuse in new metal products. Similarly, the plastic is melted and extruded for reuse.
