Terms & Conditions
We deal with Large and small companies, local authorities, tradesmen and the general public, recycling all their scrap metals while paying Top prices.
We adhere to the England and Wales Scrap Metal Dealers Act (SMDA) 2013, which came into force on 1 October 2013 when new licence applications to work as a dealer were first accepted by local councils. The newer Act repealed earlier Acts and created a revised regulatory regime for the industry of scrap metal recycling and vehicle dismantling in England and Wales.
We must verify the identity of all our sellers. Sellers must bring either a valid photographic ID that also sets out their full residential address or a formal document such as a utility bill and a valid photographic ID. Valid forms of ID include a passport and UK photocard driving licence. Acceptable formal documents include bank or building society statements, utility bills or council tax documents.
It is illegal for anyone to buy scrap metal using cash. All JC Metal Recycling Payments are made via an instant electronic bank transfer.
