Wire Chopping Services

Wire chopping, or mechanical wire recovery, is a form of wire recycling that chops and granulates wire in order to separate out different metal commodities from non-metallic, foreign materials such as plastic.

Wire scrap sources are:

  • Demolition projects
  • Dismantling sites
  • Public utilities
  • Wire and cable manufacturers

Sims Metal Management's wire chopping capabilities include: grinding copper and aluminum wire into small pellets, inspecting for foreign matter and separating plastic wire casings.
