Knowing the name of the materials is easier to get a more accurate scrap price from the local scrap yards if you are looking to make the most money from them. Inside your 500/750 Insulated Cable, you will see copper strands that can be stripped and scrapped separately. Usually 500/750 Insulated Cable is thick enough to take the time to strip for extra money. We suggest anything smaller than the width of your pinky should not be stripped for the copper inside. You will spend too much time and will lose too much weight for the removal of the insulation.
If you have a large load of insulated cable, you can schedule a pick up with your local scrap metal yard by using the container request form on the iScrap App. Ask your yard if they give special prices for large loads of insulated cable. If you are not sure where your local scrap metal yard is, the app can also give you contact information including the address and phone number.

Sometimes the copper from inside can be tin coated and when that happens you will be getting less money for your hard earned stripping time. Determining how much weight you will have after you strip the 500 mcm cables will help to figure out if it is even worth stripping. If your copper is not bare bright but has a green color or a tin coating on it then you might not be better off stripping it….but just selling it to your yard as is.
