Register of scrap metal dealers

People or Businesses who trade in scrap metal and are licensed by their Local Authority.

Search for matching licences by holder name, licence number or site location.

Please be aware. Scrap Metal Collectors have mobile operations and have no address information associated with their licence. So a search by location will not return any Collectors. They are available if you search by licence holder name, licence number or local authority.
Scrap Metal Dealer information comes directly from Local Authorities.
The Local Authorities are responsible for the accuracy of the data they provide.
To confirm a license as active or expired, click on the license number of the search results page.
The Environment Agency is only hosting the register, the information and data belongs to the Local Authorities.
Therefore, any enquiries concerning a licence should be directed to the relevant Local Authority.
