Scrap metal dealers

The Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 came into effect towards the end of 2013. Any person or business that acts as a scrap metal dealer must be licensed or they will be guilty of a criminal offence.

Oadby and Wigston Borough Council adopted a Scrap Metal Dealers Policy in July 2014. A copy of this policy is below:
