The iScrap App is a leading resource and directory for scrap yards in the US and Canada. With thousands of visitors every day on our website and mobile app, we have been asked by many users and visitors to provide scrap laws for metal recycling in the US. With the thousands of scrap yards listed in our directory, it’s important to know what laws apply to you when visiting yards in your area.
Most scrap metal laws are contingent on individual state legislation and regulations. The iScrap App team has worked with some of the recycling associations in various states and researched valid resources online for the best information regarding scrap laws in each of the states.
These are some of the common laws and regulations set in place by authorities for scrap yards and those in the scrap industry. Find your state below for further details and information for scrap yards in your state.
