No.1 ins copper Scrap recycle Value

For thousands of years, copper and copper alloys have been recycled.

This has been a normal economic practice, even if regretted by some.

One of the wonders of the old world, the Colossus of Rhodes, a statue spanning the entrance to Rhodes Harbour, was said to have been made of copper.

No trace of it remains since it was recycled to make useful artefacts.

In the Middle Ages it was common that after a war the bronze cannons were melted down to make more useful items.

In times of war even church bells were used to produce cannon.

The entire economy of the copper and copper alloy industry is dependent on the economic recycling of any surplus products.

There is a wide range of copper based materials made for a large variety of applications.

To use the most suitable and cheapest feedstock for making components gives the most economic cost price for the material.
