Prepare your copper scrap for easy transportation. Plastic garbage bags, trash cans, and barrels all work great for this function. Gather all the scrap together in anything that is easy to carry.

Check the yellow pages for a recycler. Look under 'recycling' or 'recycling services' to locate one in your area. Call and ask if they buy scrap copper. If so, ask the price per pound. If you are lucky enough to have more than one in your listings, call around and see which one is paying the most.

Take your material to the recycler. Usually, they will ask you to drive onto a scale. After you dump the scrap, you drive back on the scale and the difference in weight is the amount you are paid. Some may simply weigh your containers with and without the copper. Either way, you are going to receive cash or a check for your efforts.

Can you sell your pennies as copper by weight?

Well, you could... However, pennies are not pure copper. By the time the buyer would melt out the other metal, you probably would not get 1-cent for each penny. I mean, think about it...If copper pennies contained a lot of pure copper, everyone would be taking pick-up trucks full of pennies to sell as copper. But no one does, because it is not pure copper and has little value even after being melted. You'd be better off saving your pennies and buying yourself a CD -- at least the music would give you some enjoyment.
