Nevada Scrap Metal Prices - USA

Selling Scrap in Nevada

Nevada is a Western state that's known mostly for it's gambling culture and goes by the nickname "the Silver State". Silver has always played a major role in the state's history and it's economy, even though mining for gold is a lot bigger than mining for silver here.

Mining for other minerals and metals is also big here and that accounts for a strong blue collar trade in this state. This makes trading metals very main stream and therefore a good opportunity for cash generation.

While learning about how to get the best price and where to find material is fun and interesting, the first thing we always make sure that those new to the industry understand are the laws that govern the buying and selling of scrap metal where they will be operating. We stress the importance of this because of how diverse the laws can be state to state. Nevada has some of the stricter laws within the US to help fight the increase in scrap metal theft over the past few decades.

We have been through the legislation for buying and selling scrap metal in Nevada and summarized everything that is important to be aware of before you go the scrap yard. Most importantly, bring ID. Nevada, and the rest of the US for that matter, require a valid form of ID to sell any scrap metal.

Scrap yards in Nevada will need to keep a copy of this along with a description of your vehicle, license plate number, photograph of you at the time of the transaction and most extreme of all a copy of your fingerprints. They must also record the whole transaction. To further help law enforcement fight the buying and selling of stolen materials, they have the power to tag and hold any material for a week during their investigation.
