The first thing everyone wants to start with is scrap metal prices and where to source copper and other materials. Before any on this, the most important piece of information is to understand the scrap metal law in your region. Every state in the US has different regulations. Some of them very strict. Massachusetts has many laws in place to combat the buying and selling of illegal scrap metal, however it is not too restrictive. We have been through the legislation and found all the laws you should know before you head out to your first scrap yard and summarized them for you.

Firstly you need to understand that all scrap yards in Massachusetts are required to keep records for at least 2 years. These will include some private information. You will need to show a valid ID, which will be copied and kept on record. Plus photographs and video or you and the material during the transaction will be taken. The car or vehicle that you arrive in will also be recorded and stored. Once the transaction is complete the scrap yard must report the transaction to the criminal system which will automatically check if it corresponds with any stolen material. The police can also place a tag and hold on any material for 20 days while they conduct their investigation.
