Selling Scrap in Ohio

Having worked for so long in the scrap metal industry, we have seen so many people new to the industry. We have done our best to guide their learning to be as productive as possible. What we often see is that that people are keen to learn and want to know everything about sourcing material, getting the best prices and building relationships with scrap yards. Only a small proportion asks us about the laws that control the buying and selling of scrap metal in their state.

This is a vital question, not just for newcomers but also for those operating in a new area. Each state has its own laws governing the sale of scrap metal. They can vary drastically, often depending on how serious of a threat the buying and selling stolen scrap metal has been within that state. Ohio's laws are pretty moderate compared to other states.

We have been through the laws in Ohio and summarized everything that you must know before you start to sell scrap metal in Ohio. Firstly, understand that a lot of information will be kept on record for at least a year after the transaction. In this record the scrap yard will keep a copy of your ID. Obviously make sure not to forget it otherwise you will be heading home empty handed. The record will also include a photograph of the material, a photograph of you, a description of your car and its license plate.
