Where Can You Find Clean Copper Tubing?

Usually plumbers or contractors will have some leftover #1 copper tubing from a job and will bring any scraps in of the material. There must not be any corrosion, solder, paint, or brass fittings attached to the copper pipe to be considered number one copper. The price will usually be a little less than Bare Bright Copper wire, but will be more than brass and #2 copper tubing.

There are a few categories for clean copper tubing…and what that means is that a few items can be put together so you get paid the same amount.

  • Clean Roofing Flashing– This would be the cut offs from roofing projects or decorative projects that are on buildings and homes.
  • Certain Finer Stripped Wire- Some stripped wires are too thin to be considered bare bright, (Yes…there is a classification for this too), so they are called #1 Hair Wire and can be just like a #1 tubing.
  • Clean Bus Bar– From electrical systems, clean bus bar will have no coating or tin plating on it at all. This is one of the big items that you can lose money on if you try to sell it and it has any contamination or garbage on…always clean it!

Take it to your scrap yard and exchange the copper tubing in for some real money. Be sure to investigate your local scrap yard’s policy regarding copper tubing. #1 is usually Bare, uncoated, unalloyed copper bus bar/pipe free of attachments.
