Something that really sets North Carolina apart is that it is illegal for any scrap yard to purchase the catalytic converter when separated from the vehicle that it comes from. As with all states in the US you are required to bring ID to sell scrap in North Carolina. Seems obvious but so many people forget on their first visit or two.
