Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. Here at Metal Harvest, we take standard brass and chrome or nickel-plated brass such as taps, lamp fittings, valves, ornaments, and much more.

We also accept brass swarf. Swarf refers to the excess from machine cut metal, and we take it as long as it is free of oil or steel.


We accept standard and aluminium bronze – a type of bronze in which aluminium is the primary alloying metal added to copper.

Aluminium bronze is most commonly used in applications where its resistance to corrosion makes it preferable to alternative engineering materials.


Also known as red brass, gunmetal is frequently used to make steam and hydraulic castings, valves, gears, statues and small objects such as buttons.


We accept clean lead, such as flashings, sinkers, pipes and more. We also take lead ingots and lead-acid batteries with no holes in them.
