Yes. By law, all customers must be at least 18 years of age and present a valid driver’s license or state ID. In addition, the seller must provide the make, model, and license plate number from the vehicle used to deliver the scrap. Any material deemed suspicious will require a formal letterhead citing proof of origin.
We ask that all customers check-in at one of the drive-on scales or the non-ferrous dock scale. After we take your name and information about the items you are scrapping, you will be directed to an inspector who will examine the load, and show you where to unload. In cases where the customer has multiple items that are segregated, we will weigh each item separately. When all material has been unloaded and weighed, park your vehicle and bring your ID and vehicle information to the scale room where we will issue you cash or a check accompanied by a receipt.
