Selling Scrap in Utah

Selling scrap metal is such a simple business that many people have exploited it by buying and selling scrap metal. The buying and selling of scrap has been around as long as the industry itself. This is why the laws surrounding the sale of scrap metal has been getting stricter and stricter. So before we get into which scrap yards we recommend in Utah, we need to over the most important piece of information which is the laws and regulations of selling scrap metal in Utah.

We have been through the laws and made a short summary to equip you with everything that you need to know before heading out to sell scrap in Utah. Each state requires a different amount of information from its sellers. Utah keeps a lot on record to try to keep the black market at bay. It may seem obvious to the more experienced of you but do not go to the scrap yard without ID. Every scrap yard in Utah ( and the rest of the US in fact) must see ID before any transaction. A copy of this will need to be kept on record for any sale over $30. Along with your ID the scrap yard will note the vehicle that you arrived in, including its license plate number. A photograph of you at the time of the transaction and your fingerprints. To those new to the industry this may seem extreme but these measures have done a lot to fight scrap theft.

Now that you have this info let's get to the fun bit, the scrap yards. Firstly, let's look at Utah's largest city and state capital, Salt Lake City. From our research we found that the scrap yards that offer the best customer experience are: Nelson Scrap Metals and Utah.
