Cables can contain a number of different metals. Copper is the most common, but aluminium and steel are also frequently used. It can depend on the environment in which they’re used, due to rust or corrosion risks. Copper is typically the more expensive.

The cable recycling process is as follows:

  • The cables are sorted into their individual grades, and then weighed in order to determine the precise metal content.
  • The grades of cables are then pre-shredded.
  • The shredded plastic and copper is processed and granulated a number of times, and then separated using a waterbed system.
  • Any plastics are dealt with in a specialist plastic recycling centre, and the metals are recycled as standard.
