What, exactly, is brass and why is it recyclable? Brass is defined as a buttery yellow alloy of zinc and copper. It is used in many different types of plumbing fixtures, home décor, even sprinkler heads. Weapons casings and cartridges are sometimes made of brass, along with pipes and many automobile and truck radiators. Its price depends on the amount of brass recovered and the levels of contamination.
