So what do you need to know about brass recycling in Preston?
Which items are made of brass?
A strong, resistant and malleable alloy, that is also highly conductive, brass is used for a variety of household and everyday items including:
- light switches and fittings
- letter boxes
- door handles
- door locks
- coat hooks
What are the benefits of brass recycling
There are several advantages to recycling scrap brass, including:
- Simplifying the manufacturing processes- As an alloy, brass is usually made from copper and zinc, but this can also be balanced with lead, aluminium or manganese for different properties. As a result, recycling your scrap brass can be much easier for the manufacturing process than mining and producing more new brass.
- Protecting the environment- by simplifying the manufacturing process, there is less need for extensive drilling and mining, and this minimizes environmental destruction, and harmful pollutants causing climate change.
- Good for the economy- in the UK, manufacturers are often working with 100% scrap brass, and so recycling your scrap brass can actually be part of a larger movement supporting the economy and developing new, important items, with a lower environmental, and economical cost.
- Make money- opting to recycle your scrap brass, instead of throwing this away in landfill is a great option for your wallet. Here at X-Met Metals, we are leading brass buyers across the North West, and we offer competitive prices for any brass.
