Wire (plastic covered, or co-axial cable)


Updated on December 7, 2019



Wires and cables are recyclable, although NOT in your blue recycling cart. (They could clog the recycling machinery.)

Some wires or cables can be repaired. Sometimes it is only the connector end that needs to be replaced. If you can locate a break in the cable, it may be possible to repair that break with a splice. We recommend examining for repair before disposal.
