Scrap metal policy 2016

Closed 15 Jan 2017

Opened 1 Nov 2016


In 2013 the Government introduced the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013. Reading Borough Council adopted the legislation and licensed a small number of individuals and dealers.
The Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 does not require a council to have a policy, however recent legal advice suggests that having a policy is good practice.
If you wish to make comment, raise concerns or ask any questions regarding the proposed policy please send them by email.
