DID YOU KNOW?
You can make a little cash from your wires at the scrap yard, especially if they contain copper.
THE WIRE ZIPPER
You can turn your trash into cash with the Wire Zipper. If you have a lot of wire to dispose of and want to strip the plastic casing off yourself, buy the wire zipper device that separates the insulation from the copper. The copper is then worth more at scrap metal facilities.
