We Buy Brass (Yellow & Red)

Brass is not an element metal by itself but since it’s used so commonly and described as it’s own metal. Brass is actually an alloy made primarily of copper and zinc and is a common item found in both home and industrial applications. The most common types of brasses are yellow and red, however, there can be many other alloys of brasses. The brass industry throughout the world depends on recycling of brass scrap for its survival. Making brass from new copper and zinc would be uneconomical waste of raw materials, which is harmful to environment. With outside scales to weigh your brass, we provide quick service and our knowledgeable staff is here to help you unload your vehicle during normal business hours.

Yellow Brass is found in faucets, plumbing fixtures, valves and turnings from industrial machining, door handles, light fixtures and most keys will be yellow brass.

Red Brass has been diminishing in use, it’s still commonly recycled. It is included in things like plumbing fixtures, valves, gears and turnings.
