I’ve not had a weigh in this year!
But last year, the rates were about
£0.85 per kilo for Steel wire armoured
£1.15 /kg for domestic (which is normal flex and twin and earth)
£1.85 /kg for singles (so stripped twin and earth with red, black etc, stripped flex and actual singles)
£2.60 /kg for heavy copper (which is basically pipe)
£3.30 /kg for bright copper (which is stripped cable to shiny copper)
I think taps, valves etc were about £2.20 /kg
Can’t remember lead
So we sort everything into those piles and weigh it in accordingly, as long as we have enough.
I think if it’s not sorted they give you the price of domestic, which is probably ok if you’ve just got a bit, obviously I get loads of singles from when I strip the cables to terminate, so it’s worth sorting as I know we have enough to get a good bit more for it.
Hope that helps
