Your Local Copper Scrap Buyers

Scrap copper has earned the reputation of being one of the most valuable metals to sell. This is because quality copper can hold up to 95% of its original value, much higher than other metals. Copper can be endlessly recycled without losing any of its original qualities, for example, conductivity, and therefore is always in high demand.

As your local scrap copper buyers, our team is ready to welcome you onto our metal recycling yard, where we are proud to utilise the best, most up-to-date metal analysis systems.

Scrap Copper Prices

The price of scrap copper can be impacted by a variety of factors, for example, supply and demand or the current UK economy. Naturally, when demand is high, the price per kg will also increase. In addition, other geopolitical factors can also heavily influence the price of copper scrap. When you are looking to sell your scrap copper, it is important to find a metal merchant who is well-versed in the metal trading industry and fully understands the fluctuations of price.

Scrap Copper Recycling

The benefits of recycling copper are well known, but did you know that recycling copper requires over 85% less energy when compared to manufacturing copper from scratch? In addition, it produced approximately 65% less CO2 emissions. It is for these reasons that recycling copper is so popular, with over ¼ of the copper minded still in circulation to this day.

Before copper is recycled, it must first be sorted. Higher-grade copper can be sent on almost immediately to the end-user as it will require less processing. Lower-grade copper, although still valuable, may require additional treatments to remove any impurities. Here at Kas, our experts are able to efficiently sort all scrap copper sold to us based on the copper content, sorting the metals which are best suited for recycling, and use this information to accurately price the metal.
