Free bin supply + pick up for Industrial customers.
We buy all kinds of brass scrap, ensuring that it is properly recycled and put back into circulation. It is a copper-zinc alloy – different combinations of these metals will create different properties within the alloy (such as strength, machinability, ductility, wear-resistance, colour, and hardness).
Unfortunately, due to new government legislation, we can no long pay cash for cans in Victoria– instead, payments are made via cheque or EFT.
We specialise in the purchase of swarf from industry, which is the name given to the waste material produced in the manufacture of brass components. If you are a manufacturer who regularly needs to dispose of this waste, please contact us for more information on how we can help with disposal.
We believe that there are many reasons why you should recycle scrap when it is no longer needed, the key one being that making brass from new copper and zinc is uneconomical and wasteful of our raw materials. In the UK, for example, manufacturers use almost 100% brass scrap.
We cannot provide an exact price for old brass here in Melbourne, as the figures change on a daily basis. If you would like to see the current values or to determine how much we will pay, please download our Scrap Mobile App – all of this information (and more) will be at your fingertips!
