  • Payments for non-qualified customers on non-ferrous metal can be made only by check, which is held for three business days prior to mailing.

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.
