If you have a large quantity of Insulated Wire you may think about stripping the wire for the copper inside. While it is completely fine if you want to do that, we sometimes discourage it because you will be stripping away a lot of weight from the wire by removing the plastic and with the time you spend on doing it, you may not be able to really reap rewards with the copper leftover. Just to give you an idea, Rockaway Recycling doesn’t even strip the Insulated Wire we get in to our facility, we just scrap and bail it with the insulation on.
