Sell Copper solids to the highest price
There are many different grades of copper and they have different prices. The best grade is known as the “M1” or “A1” grade which has a high value of about $7.80 to $8.10 per kg ( Oct, 2018) . M1 grades are clean copper strands that are larger than the pencil lead we use in school.
Always remove any kind of contaminants from your copper like paper, insulation, attachments and any other non copper items. It may require a work from you but hard work does pay off! Copper solids that have attachments or are not clean are accepted as well but they are known as 2nd grade copper and have a lower price than the best grade. It is best to check with your scrap vendor the value of both coppers to see if its worth the effort to clean up the copper!
Strip copper wires
Stripping your copper wires gives you more money! However, it may not always be the case depending on your speed and how efficient are you in stripping down.
