Metal Law

Our goal is to make metal recycling as easy and convenient as possible for our customers, while following all state laws. You’ll find the most current changes to Oregon law listed below.

Ferrous items (steel, cast iron, tin, cars)

No payment changes, businesses are still able to receive cash on delivery.

Non-Ferrous items (copper, brass, aluminum, stainless steel, lead, batteries)

Certain businesses and commercial sellers may still qualify to receive cash for non-ferrous items. Contact us for details and requirements at 503-655-5433.

Metal Transportation Certificate

Oregon law requires sellers to carry a completed Metal Transportation Certificate (MTC) when transporting scrap metal intended for sale to a recycling business. Failure to do so is a Class C Misdemeanor. The MTC is available free of charge. Stop by our Clackamas office for a copy, or click this link: Oregon Metal Transportation Certificate
