O2 Sensors are not a common item that scrap yards will buy, but core buyers and those buying catalytic converters, will often buy them for scrap value. The price of O2 Sensors sometimes depends on how many you have and also the buyer’s resources.
How Do You Scrap O2 Sensors?
For the most part, you will find O2 Sensors on the wiring of catalytic converters and they can be identified because they look like a small cartridge attached to the wire. You can use a wire snipper to cut off the ends of the wire (p.s. don’t forget to add the wires to your pile) and separate the O2 Sensors into a separate bucket.
