Burning Cable for Copper content is unsafe and illegal

Burning copper wire is not a safe way to remove the copper inside it. Burning copper wire releases carcinogens and toxins into the air and into the ground around the burn site, including “dioxins, furans, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, particulate matter, heavy metals (such as lead, arsenic, selenium and cadmium) and other pollutants.” plus doing this may lead to a large fine from the environment agency.

You might wonder how burning copper wire yourself is different from the industrial process used to reclaim copper from insulated wire. It’s true that heat is also used to strip copper wire in a commercial setting. There is a big difference between holding copper wire over a flame, as an amateur might do, and a factory that uses the intense heat of an industrial incinerator and appropriate venting procedures. 
Another safe method used for industrial copper extraction is granulation, this is very common also granulated copper has a better value than burnt copper wire. 


It is well know by health and safety experts that burning insulated copper wire releases toxins that can damage your nervous system, respiratory system, and cardiovascular system, not to mention increasing your risk of cancer, It is much better to just to buy a cheap cable stripping machine than take all these heath risks. 

Although it is not illegal to sell burnt copper we strongly recommend not to burn it for your safety and the safety of others. 

There are lots of small cable stripping machines on the market, stripping cable is much more environment friendly.

Scrap Cars and Vans

WE DO NOT BUY SCRAP CARS OR VANS 

The reason for this is we are only a small scrap yard and do not have the room to store cars and vans, we deal mainly in Scrap Copper, Lead, Brass and Cables and collect scrap metals from homes and businesses.

But we can recommend 2 good Scrap Yards that buy Scrap Cars & Scrap Vans, We have done business with both of these scrap yards and have always found them very helpful, especially when it comes to buying old scrap cars and selling car parts.
