The Scrap Metal Dealers Act came into force back in 2012, but there are still several parts of it that are lesser known. Perhaps the most prominent clause of the Act is that it forbids anyone from buying scrap metal with cash – even if they are a regular customer at that particular scrap yard.
It’s been an exciting year for Maxilead Metals. Drawing to a close at the end of December, we can sit back* and look at everything we’ve achieved.
We’ve successfully continued our Maxilead Membership scheme, which was established in response to the Scrap Metal Dealers Act and deters any illegal scrap dealers from darkening our door!
Maxilead Metals were one of the first scrap yards in Manchester and the northwest to take the lead in reforming practices across the board. One of the biggest changes apart from not being able to pay cash was to implement our membership system to meet the criteria of the Act. The new rulings meant that it was illegal to not carry ID when selling scrap metal. Our membership cards provide all the relevant information, which means scrap sellers, can carry out problem-free transactions at our scrap metal yard in Tyldesley.
