If you have done any metal recycling for extra cash at all, you already know that copper can be one of the most valuable metals to haul to the recycling center. Lightweight and highly valuable, copper is easily recycled and is used in an array of different applications, so it is valuable to most copper buyers. If you have collected a pile of copper wiring to take off and exchange for some extra cash, it is best to make sure you know how to get the most for your efforts.
The next time you buy a new laptop or other electronic device with a circuit board, be sure to dispose of the old one properly. While it might not be in your best interest to take apart a single device to take out the different metals and sell them to the scrap metal yard, you can always take your things to a recycling plant and let them take them apart. Sure, you may only have one or two pieces you replace every year or so, but so does everyone else.
