Although there are other options available, copper remains the one of most widely used electrical and electronic conductors out there and a popular choice for the manufacture of wires and cabling. But while the demand for copper is increasing, the supply is shrinking. This results in copper being one of the highest paying scrap materials in the industry, even when the prices are low. This means copper cable recycling remains an important way to reclaim copper without causing environmental destruction.

TXO provides a professional copper cable recycling solution that can turn your business’ surplus cables and cords into a lucrative revenue stream. It can also help your business comply with increasingly stringent environmental legislation.

TXO’s comprehensive WEEE recycling service keeps materials at the end of their life out of landfill and makes precious metals available for repurpose. This helps reduce the demand on primary sources and generates the highest possible return for the client. All types of cable are covered by our end-to-end telecoms asset recovery service. This includes copper cables, data cables, fibre optic cables, aluminium cables, as well as the lead coated and armoured varieties.
