Brass and Bronze Recycling

Brass and Bronze are copper alloys containing copper with various other metal compounds. When you combine zinc, tin, lead or copper, a new metal is formed that is called Bronze or Brass. Other metals can be present, depending on the purpose of the metal.

One of the earliest known metal alloys is Bronze, known as the Bronze age dating back thousands of years.

Why are there different types of brass and bronze?

Strength, appearance and corrosion resistance are reason for different brass and bronze types.

Reclamet reviews

Honest, great communication, great prices. Friendly. I had a damaged catalytic converter from an attempted theft and Reclamet was the only company that had adequate communication and was not dodgy as most of the other scrap metal dealers seemed. So it was well-worth my drive from central London to Kent to get the £784 they paid me for the catalytic converter. Impressive :-)
