When you think of recycling gadgets, most of us think of eWaste, such as computers, laptops, and printers. But Mann Metals also buys electric motors. There is copper, brass, and other metals inside these motors that can be recycled.
Electric motors have been around since the mid-1800’s and most of them, regardless of how broken, have metals that can be recovered. Your home or business may have more of them than you think!
- Fans of all sizes
- Small electric tools such as drills, presses, lathes, and saws
- Drive motors for belts and rollers
- Electric carts and scooters
- Starter motors for autos
- Motors in sewing machines, printing presses, and cutters
- Drive motors for electric appliances such as dryers
In many cases, we’re interested in just the motor, not the whole machine…why chuck it into the dumpster if you can salvage a part to sell? Remove the motor, set it aside until you’ve collected a few, then bring them down to Mann Metals and sell them for cash.
Do you own a repair business? Or sell new electric tools, equipment, or appliances? Chances are, you have a collection already! We’d love to buy them from you. If you have a large volume, contact us about pick up, or if you have any questions about the motors we buy.
