About Circuit Breakers

Are Circuit Breakers Worth Scrapping?

Many scrap yards will buy circuit breakers as low bearing copper material. Circuit breakers have a small amount of copper on the inside of their plastic casing which is what makes them worth money. Many electricians and contractors will come across circuit breakers when they are doing wire-work for homes or businesses.

Are You An Electrician With A Lot Of Breakers?

If you have a large load of circuit breakers or other metals from a large project, the iScrap App can help you schedule a pick up with your local scrap metal yard and get the best Circuit Breakers Scrap Prices. Not sure where you local yard is? The app will help you locate one near you.

How Do Circuit Breakers Get Priced?

To get the best prices for circuit breakers, be sure to look at more than one scrap yard for pricing, different yards may have different prices. Some places may buy circuit breakers for reuse and pay you above scrap value…while others may only pay you for a low grade copper because of the amount of work that it takes to get inside of them.
