How Much Does Copper Sell For By The Pound

How much money can i get for copper piping.But it degrades the copper and makes it less valuable.My husband just bought several spools of wire at a garage sell for 10 bucks, spent a week stripping it in his spare time and just sold it to the recycling center fot 173 bucks.But if you cannot do that then you can sell it to a scrap yard.
