Scrap Your Electric Motor

Electric Motor Recycling is popular because of its weight and because they typically contain copper wire. Almost anything that consumes power and has moving parts contains an electric motor.

Common places to find electric motors in the home are in devices like vacuums, computers, ceiling fans, air conditioners, washing machines, blowers, and gadgets.

Transformers, pumps, machinery, and manufacturing equipment are examples of industrial devices that use electric motors.

Electric motors are in cars, starters, alternators, and generators.

How To Recycle Your Old Electric Motors

To get a better price, remove the electric motor and separate the wire from the other metal. The wire is normally copper, although it may also be aluminum.
