Brass Recycling


Brass is actually the name given to a whole range of copper-zinc alloys. Each has a different combination that makes up the brass, so some are stronger, others have a different colour, and some can have antimicrobial properties.

The composition of brass also means that it does not rust, although it may tarnish in certain conditions if it is not protected with a layer of lacquer which can come in paint, powder, or baked form.

At ASM Metal Recycling we are happy to purchase all grades of scrap brass from you, including new brass cuts, rod brass and mixed brass, brass rod borings, brass borings, and brass radiators.

Brass remains one of our most popular scrap metals and we provide our customers with the most competitive prices on the day they enquire as values tend to fluctuate by the day – and sometimes the hour! You can learn more about scrap metal prices to see how we calculate the price of your scrap.

What brass items can be recycled?

Brass is available in a range of colours and can be easily shaped for a variety of applications and furnishings. Brasses also have other useful properties, including:

  • High electrical conductivity – very useful properties given that brass is used for the pins in a 13-amp plug.
  • High thermal conductivity – extremely useful for instances when heat needs to be removed efficiently (take car radiators for example)
  • Impressive strength – this durability makes brass very useful for security products i.e. door locks which must resist bending.

With most brass products, at the end of their useful life they will be available for recycling. Here are some of the possible brass items you might have in your own home capable of being sold on to us for scrap:

  • Taps
  • Locks
  • Piping
  • Letter boxes
  • Ornaments
  • Door knockers
