The State of Ohio passed a law in 2012 and changed the scrap metal industry with Senate Bill 193 or commonly referred as SB193.
Lawmakers have changed the way scrap metal dealers are able to make purchases on materials such as copper, aluminum, brass, steel and many other items typically affiliated within the industry.
All transactions are required to have a photograph of the seller, Driver's License or State ID, license plate of the vehicle transporting the material, itemized list of the materials and, in some cases, a photograph of the item(s) being sold. All transactions are to be entered into a searchable database and reported to the State.
While this may seem like an inconvenience to some, the amount of scrap metal thefts has created a demand for some type of action. Dealers found non-compliant could face serious penalties. Individuals refusing to comply with the necessary requirements will result in no sale being made.
D&L Recycling is a registered scrap metal recycler with the Ohio Department of Public Safety-Division of Homeland Security and works with all local law enforcement to prevent theft.
