What are the advantages of scrapping your old power cords ?
Cables and wires count as WEEE waste, which is something that needs to be disposed of differently than other products. By scrapping your old cable, you can help do your bit for the environment. This is because your cables will likely be recycled, and used again in a different project, or for a different purpose. Power cables and electrical cables are made from a range of metals, including copper and aluminium, as well as some alloys, and they may be coated with tin, gold or silver. During the recycling process, around 99.5% of clean metal can be obtained. This means that this metal can be reused again, without needing to deplete anymore of the natural occurring but finite metals.
