Processing Copper at a Scrap Yard

Processing Copper at a Scrap Yard

Hi my name is Tom and when is material comes,
copper comes, everything is lined up together. So, my job is to sort it. This one is normally
#2, painted, so we move everything over. This one is #1, it’s more clean. When it’s like
that, you have to cut it right here to make it #1 and #2. And this one is #3, when this
piece comes from the gutters. When you get it like this it’s #3. Thank you very much.


  1. great job! so what happens to those pieces of copper that still has the solder on them. what about the copper that is coated? what happens to that?
