Electric Motors Have Copper Inside

Posted: August 19, 2013

Scrap prices seems to be popping upwards lately, and down at Rockaway Recycling we are always looking to buy different types of copper scraps.

There are a lot of copper bearing materials that people do not know about, such as electric motors, transformers, yolks from TV’s, and more.

One of the best items that you can look that are “hidden” sometimes are electric motors. You can find them in almost every power tool out there, inside of ceiling/floor fans, and almost anywhere else where there are moving parts.

Make sure you always look out for them and grab them when you can.

Any other questions about scrap just ask us at Rockaway Recycling!
