Where Can Brass Generally Be Found?

Brass is a metal alloy made up of both copper and zinc. Lead can also be found in brass, added in to improve its machinability. Brass is commonly identifiable by its bright gold appearance and is mostly commonly associated with use in musical instruments. The use of brass dates back to around 500BC.

For recycling purposes you are likely to find larger quantities in things such as plumbing, taps, doors, handles and ornaments. You’ll also find brass in firearm casings, radiators, architectural trim, pipes, tubing and screws.

You are likely to find brass in the home, in business settings including hotels and in industries such as plumbing and heating.

Where Can I Scrap Brass?

We have one scrap yard in Portsmouth and another close to Southampton and Winchester in Bishops Waltham. Taking your scrap brass directly to a yard will enable us to check the quality and weight before offering you a price on site.
