Mississippi Scrap Metal Prices - USA

Selling Scrap in Mississippi

The scrap metal Industry attracts people from all different backgrounds. All with unique reasons for getting into the industry. Some are looking to make some extra money on the side, some are hoping to make a career and others already have scrap that they need to off-load. What we find interesting, when speaking to people new to the industry regardless of background, is that everyone overlooks the laws that govern the buying and selling of scrap metal in their region. Understanding the laws that regulate the buying and selling of scrap metal where you operate is so important. Every state in the US has different laws and often, some are not what you would expect and can cost you a wasted trip.

Mississippi has fairly standard laws in most aspects. We have been through the laws that control the buying and selling of scrap metal in Mississippi and summarized all the key things you need to know before you go to the scrap yard. Firstly, a law that sets Mississippi apart from other states is the way that payments are dealt with. There is no cash given for scrap metal in Mississippi. The payment can be made via bank transfer or by check that will be sent to address on your driving license. That takes me to the next important point. Do not forget your driving license. A record of the transaction will be kept and a copy of your license is needed for the record. The record will also include a photo of both the material and you at the time of the transaction, a description of your vehicle and its license plate number. All this will be kept on record for a minimum of two years.

Now that you know the laws let's go through some scrap yards in the state of Mississippi. We researched the best scrap yards in Mississippi's state capital and largest city, Jackson. We found the best scrap yards are: Tri-Miss Recycling and Pull-A-Part.
