The Facebook page “GO Philippines” has shared a photo of numerous copper wires placed in different containers. The wires were being prepared for selling. The post garnered various reactions from the online community.
In the photo, it can be seen that a massive amount of copper wires, which were estimated to weigh a few kilograms are placed in various containers. The wires would probably make a lot of money once sold.
According to the uploader, the copper wires came from their father who works as an electrician. The family starts to collect and gather the copper wires a few years ago or since 2016.
