Cashless Trading

Cashless trading facility

The new Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 came into force across England and Wales on 1st October 2013, bringing a series of changes to the metal recycling industry. At Magpie Metal and Waste Ltd, we provide you with skip hire, scrap metal recycling and waste collection in Bristol and South Gloucestershire.

Main requirements of the new trading system:

  • All site based and mobile scrap metal dealers and collectors must apply for a licence from their local authority
  • Councils will check the suitability of applicants to operate as a scrap metal dealer which will include criminal record checks
  • The ban on cash payments for scrap metal will be extended to all scrap metal dealers including traditional scrap yards, mobile or itinerant collectors and motor salvage operators
  • The identity of all suppliers of scrap metal must be verified and recorded by the scrap metal dealer
The payment methods now supported are:
  • BACS payment (Account customers only)
  • Cheque
