Scraped some copper I pulled out of an old service and some feeders. # 1 copper (striped clean) was $2.45 a pound. House wire 14 and 12 unstriped was $1.23. What's the going price in different areas. I'm in the Chicago south suburban area.
someone said the other day that scrap copper was $3.50 a pound. i am in connecticut. not sure how accurate, but i have a couple hundred pounds right now stripped bare, so i'll find out real soon how much i[m gonna get for it. makes me wonder; if they'll give you THAT much for it, who THEY'RE selling it to and for HOW MUCH!!!???
