My fiance and I are new to the scrapping world. We just started about a month ago because times are tough and just like the rest of the world were looking for some extra cash. Basically when it was that time of the week when people were putting out trash we saw the amount of metal that people were tossing and put two and two together and decided to make $4.00. We’re still very new and definitaly need some help figuring out ALOT so hopefully thats where you guys come in. (Needless to say our first week we didnt realize that there is a HUGE difference if you take things apart!!! SOOOOO we lost ALOT of money!)
Anyway, we look forward to hearing any advise that anyone has to offer and if we have any we’ll gladly share!

Hi Nate, I had the same question about wire size for the difference between #1 and #2 copper wire and got the same answer, figured out if I wasn’t sure about something I took a sample of what I had and talked with the people at the scrap yard. Figured I’ll clean it the way they want it to get the most I can out of it. Hope this helps.

Nate, bare,bright copper wire is a condition, not a size. It can be any diameter. It has to be stripped and shiny.
