Copper is used for a range of purposes including plumbing, electronics and wiring, as well as machinery and industrial purposes. In fact, this is one of the most popular metals worldwide. This means though that a huge quantity of copper is necessary across all industry sectors, and currently the amount of copper being mined, is equal to the amount of copper being recycled. In light of the growing climate crisis, and environmental changes, moving towards a 100% recycled solution would be an incredible achievement. With that said, it’s now easier to recycle any of your scrap metals than ever before, especially with out mobile scrap metal collection service here at X-Met Metals.
