Why You Should Recycle Your Old Cables and Wires
Why You Should Recycle Your Old Cables and Wires
May 29, 2019

Most of us have a box at home full of old wire chargers and cables meant for electronics and devices we no longer use. We keep this box because we think we’ll need its contents at some point in the future. In reality, you probably won’t ever need the charger you used to power up your flip phone from the early 2000s. The solution to getting rid of that box is to drop that box off at your local wire recycling facility.


Today we’ll discuss a few benefits associated with wire recycling.


It’s Worth Your While


One of the largest benefits of recycling your old wires and cables is that you might even get cash return. Many recycling facilities will give you cash in exchange for your old scrap wire. This is especially true for copper wire. You might not make a fortune, but it’s definitely worth getting some type of value back in addition to getting rid of something you would otherwise throw away.


It’s Eco-Friendly


Reduce your environmental impact by properly recycling your old wires, chords, and cables. Instead of having them end up in a landfill, have them repurposed by bringing them to a recycling facility. Improperly recycled electronic waste including old wires, chords, and cables can negatively impact air, water, and soil systems affecting nearby people and ecosystems.


It’s Easy


Choosing to recycle your scrap wires, chords, and cables is simple. Whether you’re looking to conduct a complete spring cleaning overhaul, or you just want to get rid of that box of old wires and cables – you’ll feel more organized making the trip to your local electronics recycling facility.
