“Scrap Metal” means: Nonferrous metals, scrap iron, stainless steel or other material or equipment which consists in whole or in part of metal and which is used in construction, agricultural operations, electrical power generation, transmission or distribution, cable, broadband or telecommunications transmission, railroad equipment, oil well rigs or any lights maintained by the State or a local government, including, without limitation, streetlights, traffic-control devices, park lights or ballpark lights; and Catalytic converters.
Whether your Scrap Metal business is an online, home, store, concession stand or mobile cart, you will have to first select from these business or tax entities: Namely, from sole owner/proprietor, partnership, LLC or corporation.

It does not matter which Scrap Metal one you choose when it comes to a General Business License because all entities need that one. (Note that this is not a specific license to your type of business, it is a BUSINESS license) as well. Using the company name subjects you to having to file a DBA.

“Scrap Metal” does not include waste generated by a household, aluminum beverage containers, used construction scrap iron or a metal product in its original manufactured form which contains no more than 20% by weight nonferrous metal. Recycling Metals is much bigger than the retail (or consumer focused) side.

If you are starting a metal recycling and scrapping, know that it is a profitable business for many, especially in tough times. While it's a dangerous job, high metal prices can make you a lot of money because people will pay you to haul away junk which you can then break down and sell to buyers.

Find out how to start a scrap metal business to decide if it can be a wise investment of time and resources. What You Need pickup truck or utility trailer magnet grinding wheel hammers cutters personal protective equipment first aid kit maps or GPS unit screwdrivers buckets Of course you need to understand how scrap metal pricing works.

First, nonferrous metals are more scarce and more valuable than ferrous metals because pricing can fluctuate and though pricing is important, you need to choose a vehicle for scrap collection such as a pickup truck, and you may wish to consider a 3/4 ton or larger pickup and an 18' utility trailer with a winch.

Of course, don't forget, this is metal, and it can cut your fingers so wear protective equipment, and understand how to use it, as well as how to safely operate tools. Safety glasses, gloves, safety shoes, reflective vests and first aid kits are basic elements of safe collecting. In addition, because metal can generate loud sound, make sure you are wearing protection and a welding mask may also be required. Stay alert to moving traffic and equipment. You will need tools for the scrap collection trade, such as a magnet, which helps identify ferrous metal and a grinding wheel, which can help identify the metal type by what kind of spark it produces.

Additional equipment could include various hammers, screwdrivers, wire cutters, pocket knives, drills, pliers and pry bars. SCRAP METAL LAW: Code Citation: Scrap Metal Processors Revised Statutes Chapter 647 § 647.010 to § 647.145 (as amended by 2013 Nevada SB 235) Destruction of Property to Obtain Scrap Metal Revised Statutes Chapter 202 § 202.582 (as amended by 2013 Nevada SB 37) Materials Covered and Other Definitions “Junk” includes old iron, copper, brass, lead, zinc, tin, steel and other metals, metallic cables, wires, ropes, cordage, bottles, bagging, rags, rubber, paper, and all other secondhand, used or castoff articles or material of any kind, but does not include Scrap Metal.

There is a tremendous amount of industrial recycling as well. Metals have managed to find their way into a variety of products that can be found on construction sites across the globe. For example, recent technological advances have made it possible for plastic bags to be turned into plastic lumber. Think about how beneficial this can be for the environment, now that we can substitute trees for plastic bags.

This will revolutionize an entire industry, and will reduce the carbon footprint of new buildings. The Institute of Scrap Metal Recycling Industries has compiled a great list of statistics that demonstrate the potential for this young industry. In 2009, 479 million lbs. of post-consumer non-bottle rigid metals were recovered.

This is a 47% increase since 2007. In 2010, the US exported more than $940 million in plastic scraps. There is an 80–90% reduction in energy consumption when producing recycled plastic compared to producing plastic from virgin materials. In 2009, 854,377,000 lbs. of postconsumer plastic film were collected for recycling.

While this may seem like a win-win for everyone involved, the Metals recycling industry still faces some headwinds. These challenges range from the inaccurate perception that recycled materials are inferior to virgin materials to regulations that didn’t include the possibility of recycling metals.

Depending on local municipalities, the total tax rate can be as high as 8.875%. Other, local-level tax rates in the state of New York are quite complex compared to local-level tax rates in other states.
