We Buy Copper
Copper has been in use by civilization for over 10,000 years and has been recycled since early times. Because it does not degrade during recycling, copper in use today could have been first fabricated into objects thousands of years ago. Even the coins in your pocket may contain recycled copper that could be thousands of years old. The fact is, copper that is recycled each year is almost as much as the copper that is mined from ore. At Astro City Scrap Metal, we accept all types of copper scrap metal and we pay top dollar to you.
