Copper is highly ductile, meaning it can be stretched out as thin as possible yet remain strong. It’s used in electrical wiring, is malleable and resistant to corrosion.
There’s more copper found in better built vehicles that are heavily tech reliant. And that’s why it would be a terrible waste not to recycle all this copper.

In the vehicle scrap game, it literally is down to the wire…

Britain’s best loved scrap yard The Scrappers have revealed they strip around 50 tons of copper wire from scrap vehicles each year, roughly equalling 11,700 miles in length.

That’s 117,000 miles since they first started ripping out the wiring almost ten years ago. 

That equals four and a half times round the world! 🚗 ♻︎ 🌍

On a daily basis the team will rip out around 45 miles of copper wiring, a distance that would get you pretty much from their Waterloo Street site in Bolton to Leeds. 

Although labour-intensive work, copper wiring can be extremely lucrative providing a meaty payout each week when sold on.

How much do you get to scrap a car UK?



When the nation went into lockdown traffic congestion dramatically reduced, around 80 per cent in some areas of the UK. 

Now as isolation eases and the country steadily gets back on its feet, more of us are getting behind the wheel again too. 

For an estimated fifth of motorists, the prospect of getting back in the driving seat has instilled a feeling of fear and anxiety.

“Getting used to things like driving again, takes a bit of practice to restore confidence,” reassures Terry Walker founder of The Scrappers scrap yard in Bolton.

Terry should know, he’s been in the car scrap game most of his life.

“It’s probably a good idea to take your car out for a steady spin on a Sunday or early evening when it’s quieter on the roads and get used to getting back on the road again. 

“As with so many things in life, practice makes perfect.”

At the time of blogging, there are 5,732 E-Types in the UK with MOTs.

Weigh that up against 30,843,909 cars and vehicles currently with valid MOTs and Jag E-types count for 0.0186% of the lion’s share.

Next spring the E-type turns 60 years old. And by goodness she’s still got it.

It’s a joy to see motorists keeping their classic cars on the road, and
