Scrap metal licence

All businesses that buy and sell scrap metal must have a scrap metal dealer licence issued by us.

You must hold either a site or mobile collector’s licence, issued by the council, if you are a scrap metal dealer in England and Wales.

It is an offence to carry on a business as a scrap metal dealer without having a licence.

More details can be found on the Government's Scrap metal dealer licence (England and Wales) web page.
