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.
