About #3 Copper with Tar

What Is Dirty Roofing Copper?

Roofing Copper with heavy tar can often be found on roofs, gutters, and other home building resources. Separating your copper scrap from your other scrap metal can be helpful for you to make more money on your scrap metal, so be sure to get the latest Roofing Copper with Tar Scrap Prices. Sometimes the #3 roofing copper can have tar, wood, or other materials on it from the construction job or demolition work.

What Makes Roofing Copper Dirty?

Similar to the #3 Roofing Copper, this material will be prices lower than other copper materials like wire and tubing. Due to the heavy amount of tar or wood on the roofing copper you could see an even lower price at your local scrap yard because the process of recycling will be even more difficult. We suggest separating the cleaner pieces of roofing copper from the really dirty ones so you can make the most from both.

What If You Can’t Clean The Roofing Copper

If you cannot remove the tar from the copper, be sure to separate it from the cleaner scrap before bringing it to a local scrap yard. Separating clean scrap from dirty scrap will get you more cash when you scrap #3 copper with tar. You can find a scrap yard near you by searching the iScrap App for scrap yards in your area.
