We Help Recycle Your Brass in San Jose
At Ranch Town Recycling, we offer comprehensive salvage and brass recycling services that help save the earth while simultaneously saving you money. This material is not considered an “element metal” on its own; rather, copper is the primary element found in it although it is alloyed with a high quantity of zinc. We accept a broad range of materials here at our San Jose center, so here’s a look at what you can unload during your next trip through town.
Types Accepted at Our Facility Near the Mountain View, Cupertino and Sunnyvale Areas
We offer both traditional and brass casing recycling at our headquarters. The types we accept include, but are not limited to:
- Bullet shells
Please note that most brass falls into one of the following categories:
Yellow – The most common variety, this type is commonly found in keys and household plumbing items such as your kitchen or bathroom faucets. Aptly named for its yellow hue, the value of this material fluctuates with both demand and the price of copper.
Red – Less common than its yellow form, this type boasts a red hue that comes from the high amount of copper found within the material. When recycled, much of this material is used to make sprinklers or shut-off valves.
Semi-red – This form has largely replaced red in terms of popularity and is often repurposed to make sprinklers, shut-off valves or an array of other useful items.
