Wasn't too sure where to put this. I recently saw a news clip on a company that recycles the metals from used/dead electronic components. I am trying to find more information on this process, companies, etc. Can anyone help me with informations, links, and the like?

There are a couple of companies that I'm aware of that do this. My Office gets calls concerning this at least once a day, mostly trying to find sources of scrap that can be exported to China. Most suggest they will buy something like 10,000 tonnes of copper or steel a month for the next year.

Considering the market for scrap is locked up so tight unless an overseas customer is will to pay a premium most suppliers will deal with local customers, like the tube and rolling mills or ingot manufacturers.
