Scrap metal and motor salvage licence
A licence is needed for all places where an operator carries out a business as a scrap metal dealer. A manager must be appointed for each of these sites. A site licence will also permit an operator to transport scrap metal to and from the specified sites from any other local authority area.
A collectors licence allows a person to operate as a mobile collector within a local authority area. The licence does not allow the collector to move between different local authority areas and a separate licence will be needed from each authority.
