Bring your scrap Brass and other metals to Rockaway Recycling 6 days a week. We will be able to help you separate and unload your scrap metal when you arrive at our facility in Rockaway, NJ. Brass is used in a lot of plumbing work and fixtures. It can also be found in decorative statues as well. It is a very dense and heavy metal, that has a yellowish tint to it. Brass is made up of zinc and copper, the more copper that is in the Brass, the more red the color. Often times we suggest to customers to cut the brass fixtures off the ends of copper pipe so you can separate the two metals and make more money. We have plenty of videos and helpful tips on our YouTube to help show you how to separate your brass before coming to our facility.

Where To Find Scrap Brass

Brass is found in so many places you would be shocked. See that pen on your desk? Many metals pens are made of brass, and you see it every day. Brass has many different uses and forms, many of which you might not even know about.

Most sink faucets, spigots for your hose, rod brass, EDM wire, and other products are all brass and can produce scrap. Brass scrap can be found all over the place, there is brass on connection valves on grills, ovens, and sinks, as well as in decorative pieces like plates and some silverware. You can also have brass lamps, statues, and other household items that can be collected for scrap.

How do you tell that your metal is brass? Use a file to scratch it and see if it is yellow afterward. Brass is a yellow color and is mixed with copper and zinc (sometimes more metals) to create the metal. Brass does not rust, but it could corrode, and when it does, you will have to replace whatever that brass piece was being used for.
