Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013

In October 2013, the Scrap Metal Dealers Act came into force across England and Wales, bringing a series of changes to the metal recycling industry. In Scotland , equivalent legal requirements were enacted through the Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982 (as modified by the Air Weapons and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2015). As part of this legislation, cash payments to suppliers of scrap metal , including mobile collectors and motor vehicle salvage operators by metal dealers are banned. It is also a requirement that metal dealers must verify the identity of anyone that they buy scrap material from. The documents that we are able to accept to comply with this legal requirement are:

• Valid UK photo driving licence
