Our Simple Bronze Scrap Recycling Process
Not sure where to bring your scrap bronze in Kansas City?
Stuck with some bronze items you aren’t sure how to dispose of responsibly? Well you’re in the right place. Langley Recycling is a metal recycling facility based in Kansas City. We specialize in recycling both ferrous and non-ferrous metals and we’d love to help you responsibly recycle your scrap bronze.
It’s much more expensive and costly to the environment to create bronze from scratch than it is to recycle it. This is why it’s so important to recycle your bronze, rather than dispose of it another way. The scrap bronze price is also frequently changing depending on the international bronze market, so be sure to check the current cost with us before you come. We’ll always try and get you the best deal.

Yes, bronze can be recycled along with other non-ferrous metals such as copper and aluminum. In fact, bronze is a very valuable metal to recycle and it’s worth a lot. When you come to recycle your bronze scrap, you need to make sure you take it to a facility that deals with non-ferrous metals, to ensure it’s recycled safely and responsibly.
Bronze is an extremely sustainable metal due to its recyclability and the fact it is able to maintain its properties. These include being robust, structurally sound and long-lasting (although this will vary depending on the composition of the bronze, as it’s usually mixed with different materials to determine strength and overall resistance to corrosion). For example, 88% bronze is most commonly mixed with 12% tin to boost its properties and make it last even longer.
The main reason for recycling bronze (or any metal/recyclable material) is usually to reduce harm to the environment. When metals are made from scratch, the extraction process causes pollution to nearby soil, air and waterways, not to mention noise pollution. Creating metals from scratch also uses up the earth’s natural resources, which puts pressure on non-renewable energy.
It’s both cheaper (for the business and consumer) and more environmentally friendly to use recycled metals rather than mine more. And that’s why your scrap metal is extremely valuable to recycling facilities like ourselves at Langley Recycling.
