Recycling electrical meters is very important because of their uses and benefits to the scrap industry and gas companies. Electric meters are constantly changing out meters to upgrade their technology proving the need for recycling electric utility meters. Utility meters are used for many measurements:

  • Electricity meters
  • Smart meters
  • Gas meters
  • Water meters
  • Heat meters

With new technology emerging, there is becoming more replacing and less use of manual utility meters. Consequentially, more use of smart meters which require minimal effort for companies to collect data from and produce invoices. In fact, all it takes is for a van to drive through the neighborhood. Instead of the meter man or woman having to walk from house to house. Instead of discarding and having a stockpile of scrap utility meters, Interco will recycle the scrap utility meters. Until every company possesses these new meters, it is very important that everyone recycles their scrap utility meters.

At Interco, we have a massive warehouse located in Illinois where we recycle thousands of pounds of scrap. As a result, we want your scrap utility meters. Trucks bring in scrap to our warehouse and we handle plenty of electrical meter recycling. Before you send, we ask that you try and remove the glass cover from scrap utility meters when planning to recycle utility meters.  Scrap utility meters come in a few different forms.

  • Analog meters with glass cover
  • Digital meters with glass cover
  • Digital meters with plastic covers

We ask that you do your best to remove glass covers when recycling electrical meters because much of the weight of the meter comes from the glass covering. That way, when you decide to recycle utility meters, they come in a form that can be completely recycled.
