The Significance of Copper Recycling

The Significance of Copper Recycling

When it comes to the recovery and recycling of copper in Western Canada, there’s a world of possibilities. Consider this: within an average household, more than 400 pounds of copper silently power our wiring, plumbing, and appliances. Even your everyday car isn’t shy about its copper content, boasting up to 50 pounds of this exceptional metal. And for those eco-conscious drivers, electric vehicles take it up a notch with a hefty 150 pounds!

Copper isn’t just any metal; it’s incredibly versatile. With its malleability, unparalleled heat and electrical conductivity, and the ability to form remarkable alloys with various other metals, copper stands out. What’s even more impressive is that copper is 100% recyclable! Thanks to its durability and resistance to corrosion, it’s estimated that about 80% of all the copper ever mined still exists today. It can be recycled endlessly, maintaining the same quality as freshly mined copper.

“Pure copper boasts the highest electrical and thermal conductivity among all commercial metals. Over half of the copper produced finds its purpose in electrical and electronic applications. Copper alloys, with over 400 different combinations, serve various applications, manufacturing processes, and environments, including brass, bronze, copper-nickel, nickel-silver, and beryllium copper.” –
