Tips for Copper Recycling

Here are some useful tips to keep in mind before contacting us:


  • If you don’t have a large amount of scrap copper or other steel materials for recycling, just keep it somewhere safe until you feel in constitutes a collectable amount, and we’ll be on your doorstep in a jiffy. Alternatively, you can send us pictures of what you have, and we will be happy to advise you accordingly.  

  • If you have ever walked around in your area or somewhere close to your work and spotted waste just sitting there, go and have a closer look. If it looks viable for recycling, ask the owner or supervisor on duty if you can hand it in for recycling. It could very well happen that they are overloaded with work themselves and would be happy for you to take it off their shoulders, earning you an extra buck.

  • You can turn your smaller copper strips - often found in home appliances - into homemade jewellery and crafts if you are willing to heat the insulation and strip the wires slightly. Turn those copper wires into crafts and sell them at the Christmas market.


Benefits of Steel or Copper Cable Recycling

Your contribution is only a piece of the puzzle. Every part that is recycled impacts our environment.


  • Steel recycling in Sydney can be anything from old steel beams to reinforcement offcuts. Sometimes recyclable metals appear where you least expect it, therefore, never assume you cannot recycle a product. Check with us before disposing of any materials, we may just be able to reclaim that cable.

  • Steel retains its natural qualities and can be recycled repeatedly. This step is the first in keeping our landfills from overflowing.

  • Recycling plants also create new job opportunities. It’s a win-win situation because reproduced products by newly employed staff help to lower the amounts of pollution and improve the living standard of employees.
