Although you won’t make much from mice, you should scrap them anyways so that they are recycled properly. Mice are made up of mostly plastic but depending on what kind you have, they may have metals like steel and copper inside of them, as well as small circuit boards. If you can take apart your mice and find the metals inside, you will be able to get more cash. If you scrap yard does take scrap mice check with them for their current Mice Scrap Prices.
How To Sell Scrap Mice
Because they have some much plastic on them, it may not be worth the time to scrap as a whole unit, unless you have hundreds of pounds. Usually we suggest taking them apart for the circuit board inside and clip the copper wire off the back of them. Ask you local scrap yard if they accept them.

Do All Scrap Yards Buy Mice?
Not all scrap metal yards accept e-waste so be sure to ask before you bring it. There are special e-waste yards that will give you better pricing for mice than a normal scrap metal yard would. Be sure to check more than one yard near you to get the best pricing for mice. See more Scrapping Videos here.
