Legal Facts

The Legal Facts of Cashless Trading

Cashless trading came into force in December 2012 as part of the implementation of the updated Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishing of Offenders Act, 2012.
The Act banned the use of cash in the trading of all scrap metal within England and Wales. It is now an offense to pay people in cash.

Note that Itinerant Collectors are not exempt from the cash ban, unless they have been granted an order under section 3.1 of the Scrap Metal Dealers Act by the Local Authority and the local Police Chief.
Vehicle dismantlers buying end-of-life vehicles (ELVs or scrap cars) for parts brokerage are still able to pay in cash.

Operation Tornado

Operation Tornado is a scheme which requires anyone selling scrap metal to participating dealers to provide photographic proof of identity. The scheme was developed in partnership with the British Metals Recycling Association (BMRA), the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO), the Home Office, and Northumbria, Durham and Cleveland Police. Read more about Operation Tornado on the British Transport Police website.

The New Scrap Metal Dealers Act

[Cashless trading UK, payment options, Thanet Metals] The new Scrap Metal Dealers Act (SMDA) came into effect in autumn 2013. At that time itinerant collectors and vehicle dismantlers will be wholly subject to the cash ban. The new SMDA will also make the necessity for identification, at point of sale, a legal condition. The likelihood is the requirements for proof of identification will be very similar to those required, now, by operation Tornado.

Phoned them up about a car I had for scrap or spares, they came the same day and picked it up from outside my house, top price paid also as I had another quote from another local scrap yard and they was offering less.

Great local scrap yard to use, the staff seem like a great bunch always there to help and assist your needs, they even employ a mentally challenged man ( i think his name is RAY ) which is lovely to see. all in all a great place.

Called at there yard with some old upvc windows and profile off cuts, decent price paid for what I had, will call back again when im in the area next doing work.

don't know if prices were the best wasn't worried for the little bit I had but very helpful. Floging scrap has got much more official since the last time I did it but money was in the bank within half an hour will go back there again next time I've collected enough to bother with (probably another 3 or 4 years
