What do we Buy?

At Bare Wire Recycling, our primary focus is purchasing and recycling scrap wire. However, we also buy all types of non-ferrous metals as well, including copper, brass, aluminum, stainless steel, copper motors, copper transformers, copper content, catalytic converters, and much more. Below, you'll find images and descriptions of metals we buy.

We have been in business for four years specializing in purchasing wire from contractors, electricians and electrical suppliers alike. We have expanded our business to accept more than commercial, industrial, communication, and residential wire scrap. We now have the ability to recycle everything from wire to florescent light bulbs.

We take pride in knowing what our competition doesn't. If you have any questions about anything not listed below please don't hesitate to contact us.
