Scrap Copper prices in Phoenix Arizona are not too different than what you would find in other major cities across the United States. However if you travel to smaller towns just outside of Phoenix you will find the prices for scrap copper tubing, or copper wire to be significantly different. In Phoenix, Arizona one high level scrap copper wire known as “bright and shiny” number one will be purchased by scrap metal companies for as much as $3.80 per pound. The exact same amount of bright and shiny copper number 1 wire sixty miles outside of Phoenix will only yield a person $1.50 per pound at scrap metal yards or junk yards.
“We are finding that more and more customers from areas just outside of Phoenix like Globe, Snowflake and Flagstaff are making the one to two hour drive to sell their scrap copper wire to larger recycling centers in the west valley where they will get significantly more for their scrap metal” said Renovated Metals President, Ellis Rubenstein.
Other large phoenix recycling centers are seeing this trend as well. The president of one of the largest scrap metal recycling centers in Tempe, Arizona says that this can be seen in the east valley as well. “We have been seeing a surgence of out of town clients in the past few months who are saving up months worth of scrap copper and driving it into the city to get higher pricing” said the President of I Buy Scrap Metals Trent Houg.
I Buy Scrap recycles all sorts of scrap metals including scrap copper, scrap aluminum and HMS steel.
Most of the scrap metal that they receive stay in the United States. It is first processed and sorted at their scrap yard in Tempe, Arizona and then sent to metal foundries in the United States where it is melted down and re-used.
