All too soon, the new year will be here, and it will be time to pack away the holiday decorations at your home and business. As you take them down and choose whether to keep or discard your holiday lights, please keep in mind that Mann Metals buys all kinds of scrap metal, including string lights of all kinds!
If you are planning to toss your old incandescent holiday string lights and take advantage of sale prices on energy efficient, long lasting LED lights, bring us the old ones…even the non-working strings are worth cash at Mann Metals! Copper wire is valuable. Offset the cost of new lights, by selling the old ones for scrap.
Contact Mann Metals with any questions about recycling and selling holiday string lights, and for our current copper prices!
Enjoy your holidays, and have a very Happy New Year!

Copper was the very first metal to be mined and worked, as it is found near the earth’s surface, and is a soft metal that can be worked with simple tools. As early as 9,000 BC it was used in weapons, tools, and as ornaments in the Middle East. Mined as malachite, and smelted in kilns used for pottery, it was easier to find and work than was gold.
The price of copper has risen over the past few years, making it far more valuable than just a decade ago. And when the price of virgin copper rises, so does Mann Metal’s price for scrap copper. Please call or stop by for our current prices.
Mann Metals buys copper found in insulated wiring, small motors, plumbing, and in heating and cooling systems. Contact us to find out if the scrap copper you’d like to get rid of can earn you cash, too.

Electricians produce scrap wiring and metals no matter how carefully they spec their jobs or measure materials. It’s a cost of doing business. Plus, there’s scrap when you pull old wiring and boxes out to replace them. Most homeowners and businesses want you to get rid of the mess for them, too. Much of the scrap is copper or aluminum, and a little comes from electronics. Almost all of it is recyclable, and Mann Metals will buy it from you.
Don’t throw money away or leave it in a customer’s dumpster or roll-off! You’ve paid good money for that scrap wire, and your sweat and muscles have pulled that old wiring out. Rather than toss it in the trash, collect even the smaller scraps in a bin in your truck or van, and then bring it on down to Mann Metals to sell. No small business owner can afford to throw money away. Recover some of the materials costs and sell the scrap to Mann Metals weekly, monthly or quarterly. In this economy, every cent you save is a cent you’ve got in your pocket!
For small amounts of scrap metal, loading the scrap into a pick-up and bringing it to Mann Metals is easy, and the dollars recovered for “trash” add up. For large amounts of scrap metals, contact us about providing containers and pick-up service. Mention our blog the next time you visit Mann Metals, let us know what you think.
Maybe your holiday lights failed or you upgraded to a more environmentally-friendly LED type. In either case, don’t throw the old ones away. Recycle them at Mann Metals. The insulated wire that attaches the lights together have copper inside them and have a value if you bring it in to our facility.
