Bring your scrap copper wires and other materials to Rockaway Recycling 6 days a week. We accept all copper wires and cables, including Romex® brand wire by Southwire. Also known as housewire, non-metallic cable is often used in communication equipment and will usually be thinner than the thickness of a finger. Housewire usually has a series of smaller copper wires within the insulation. It is not really worth the time to strip your wire for the bare bright copper inside, due to the small amount of copper you would get from it and the majority of material you will take away with the insulation. If you have other copper wires or cables you want to scrap, be sure to keep them separate from your wire so you can make the most money.
