As of 1 September 2016, we are no longer allowed to pay cash for scrap metal.
As well as banning cash payments, the Scottish Government has made it a requirement for us to verify the identity of those selling scrap metal.
Acceptable forms of identification include:
- A valid photographic ID, which also sets out the seller’s full name and residential address.
- A formal document, such as a utility bill, that bears the person’s full name and residential address and a valid photographic ID that includes the seller’s date of birth as well as their full name and residential address.
