Recycling Insulated Cables

Recycling Insulated Cables

Scrappys are the leaders in recycling insulated cables.

Electrical cables are generally composed of a metal conductor inner housed within plastic insulation. Recycling insulated 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.

Old copper and aluminium wires covered in insulation cannot be processed directly for recycling and the insulation must be removed first. Scrappys utilise a mechanical process where the insulation is cut and separated from the copper or aluminium wire.

While various recycling companies may adopt different methods of recycling insulated cables, the basic objective remains the same – separate the metal wires from the rubber/plastic casing and extract the precious metals. After the recycling process is completed, you get concentrated copper, brass and steel fine powder.

Copper is undoubtedly the most recycled wire material as it is used in a lot of items, ranging from air conditioning units to household wires. This is due primarily as it is a very good conductor of electricity.
