Insulated Copper Wire
Description: Unburned copper wire, with various coating or insulation. See also "Burned Copper Wire" and "Bare Copper Wire".
How to prepare for recycling: Accepted as is. Cut ends off and sort separately prior to arrival to increase value. Stripping insulation will also increase value but may or may not be worth the time and effort to do so. Copper clad steel wire will be purchased at steel price. (NOTE: Steel will attract a magnet, clean copper wire will not.)
