How to sell scrap copper

..to maximize your scrap copper price? In order to sell something well, you must first be the master of it.  Scrap yards in Singapore generally take in all kinds of scrap copper, but they pay different price for different copper grades. They usually have their own prices based on their own grades of copper . We hope that you will learn how to master the difference between copper grades in general through this article by sorting out your copper before heading down to scrap yards to sell scrap copper. 

Grade 1 / No.1 Copper / M1 Copper

The most valuable and highest paying grade of copper. 

  • Stripped from any form of insulation
  • The thickness of each strand of copper should be more than 2.5mm in general ( As a guide, the pencil lead that we use in school)
  • Clean
  • Bright
  • Clear from any form of contaminants which includes signs of oxidation and very negligible amount of patina. 

This type of copper is usually retrieved from copper cables and wires after going through a reycling process. Its clean and uncoated surface make it easy to reuse or recycle, and demand a high market price compared to other base metals. As such, it is usually the first thing that scrap collectors look for.

  1. Copper pipe – free of any fittings and excessive paint works
  2. Copper tape
