Thank you for stopping by Bare Wire Recycling and joining us in the fight to preserve the planet for future generations. Our mission is to keep copper and other scrap metals out of the landfill while putting money in your pocket

Reserves of copper are still sizeable, but will not be able to sustain present rates of demand. Therefore it is even more important than ever that not one pound of copper in circulation be wasted in a landfill.

At Bare Wire Recycling, our customers come first. Whether you are a contractor, electrical supplier, electrician, or a scrap metal recycler, you've come to the right place. We strive to provide the best on-site service possible while paying you the highest current market value.

Brandon Cooper, the owner and founder of Bare Wire Recycling, has been in the waste and recycling industry for over 10 years. Since its beginnings, Bare Wire Recycling Inc. has earned a reputation as an innovator and pioneer in the industry.

Our customer base has grown from a handful of electricians in Calgary to servicing the entire Province of Alberta. We will continue to serve the Albertans while working towards the goal of expanding across Canada. In doing so, we hope to leave a positive footprint on the industry as well as our environment. As we continue to grow, we never forget what it most important: The Legacy We Leave Behind.
