How Copper Recycling Works

When copper reaches our facility, we first inspect it visually. This allows us to separate it into different grades, depending on the type of copper. For instance, the purest and most valuable copper is #1 bare bright copper wire. North Star Metal Recycling can melt this down and recast it without requiring additional steps. Other types require a more involved process. For example, with lower-grade copper, we might electroplate the copper after melting it down. No matter which type of copper you deliver to our facility, we can recycle it.

What New Products Come From Recycled Copper?

Once we recast recycled copper, there are numerous directions we can go in. We sell copper products to various industries. It can then be used in electronics, wiring, vehicles, industrial machinery, power generation, telecommunications, motors, roofing, appliances, plumbing, and more. It is ubiquitous and used throughout the world in numerous applications.

Why Should My Company Recycle Copper?


Because copper is durable and attractive, there is an endless demand for it. It is used in construction rather heavily. Not only do plumbers use it to construct piping, but roofers use it for metal roofing. Metal-sided buildings are also common in commercial settings. Copper is 100 percent recyclable and does not degrade in quality following processing. It has numerous benefits, including:

  • Reduced Landfill Costs: Recycling anything is a great way to reduce the usage of local landfills, which are rapidly approaching problem-level capacity. If you do not reuse your copper products, they will end up in the landfill and continue contributing to the problem.


  • Environmental Friendliness: The more we recycle copper, the less we need to mine for it. Mining can have destructive impacts on the ecosystem, so recycling is a wonderful way to ease the strain on mother nature. Plus, it will have a positive effect on your business’ brand.
  • Conserved Energy: Recycling copper conserves 85 percent of the energy required to produce copper from scratch. Also, copper ore is a finite resource – meaning there is a limit on how much can be mined. Recycling eases the burden.
