Recycling scrap copper wire that accumulates on a job site has several environmental and economic benefits.

Copper recycling consumes between 85 and 90 percent less energy than mining and processing virgin copper ore.
Establish a reputation as a sustainable business: Any business's first aim should maintain a positive public image. A solid track record of sustainability can provide a competitive edge, enabling to win more project bids. When entrepreneurs plan and proactively manage copper recycling, they can demonstrate their company's commitment to giving back to the community and conserving the environment.
Earn money by recycling scrap wire: The most practical reason to recycle copper is, of course, to earn money. Copper is a precious metal that may frequently be sold to offset the expense of wire. Copper prices fluctuate with the economy and vary significantly amongst recycling locations, and specific grades of copper wire are more valuable than others.
