North Dakota Scrap Metal Prices - USA

Selling Scrap in North Dakota

We have been helping those new to the scrap metal industry get their foot in the door for years. It is always interesting to see, that the thing that they are most interested in are where to sell scrap and for some how to acquire good scrap metal. What they never ask is "What laws should I be aware of?". This is such an important question - particularly in US where every single state has its own laws. Some are super strict, while some are very relaxed. North Dakota is on the more relaxed side in most cases. We have studied the laws and regulations that govern the buying and selling of scrap metal in North Dakota and summarized everything that you must know.

First and foremost: bring ID! This isn't only true for North Dakota, but for the whole US. Scrap yards cannot buy from you without it. It may seem obvious, but so many people turn up the first time to a scrap yard without their ID. A copy of this will need to be kept on record along with the details of the transaction.

For scrapping cars and vehicles the scrap yard must report it them to the National Motor Vehicle Title and Information System. This allows the police to track who owned the car and who sold it. That in turn helps fight vehicle theft.
