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:

Please note: Where an application is withdrawn or refused the Council reserves the right to levy a reasonable and proportionate administration fee to cover the costs of processing up to the point of withdrawal or refusal. Where a licence is suspended or revoked there will be no reimbursement of the application fee.
