Scrap metal dealer licensing

Scrap metal dealers collector's licence

A collector's licence issued by us allows you to carry on a business as a mobile collector within the Thurrock area. It does not allow you to collect from any other local authority area. If you wish to collect from another area, you will need to apply for a separate licence from the local authority in question for each area. 

The licence allows you to collect any scrap metal as appropriate, including commercial and domestic scrap metal. 

The licence does not allow you to carry on a business at a site. If you wish to operate from a fixed site, you will need to apply for a site licence.

There is no restriction as to where you can transport and sell material.

The licence is valid for 3 years from the date of issue.
