Itinerant scrap metal dealersLast updated: 11 November 2005 08:46 UK
A registered scrap metal dealer may trade by collecting waste materials and old broken, worn out or defaced articles by way of visits from house to house. If this is the case we may make an order, after consultation with the Police, exempting you from keeping exact records of dealings as mentioned above. You must keep receipts (showing the weight and price paid) for the sale of scrap metal for a period of 2 years. For clarification we do not consider that itinerant dealers should occupy a store of any description.
Failure to comply with these provisions is an offence and we may also revoke the order at any time.
