Scrap metal licences

Apply for a site licence

If you wish to run a scrap metal dealership on a fixed site, you will need a licence and you will need to have a site manager named for each site. 

The licence allows the licensee to transport scrap metal to and from the licensed site from any local authority area.

Licences last for three years and must be renewed - trading without a licence is a criminal offence.

The cost of the licence is £377
