Scrapping Aluminum Wire & Why It Can Pay Off

If you have insulated aluminum wire or bare aluminum wire, there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure that you receive the best price at your scrap yard. Insulated aluminum wire is used in replacement of copper wire in many instances to be a cheaper and easier solution. While it is not quite as good a conductor as copper, aluminum wire can be lighter in weight and should also be considered a valuable metal when scrapping.

If you come across insulated aluminum wire when scrapping, it is a good idea to strip it down to make some more money with it. Usually if you take the time to strip it you can make upwards to $0.30 more per pound with the clean aluminum wire you get from it. Just make sure when stripping copper wire, use the right technique that works for you and is easy. Be sure to use all of the proper safety equipment and tools.
