Scrap metal dealer licences
You need a licence from us to operate as a scrap metal dealer, operate a scrap metal site or trade as a motor salvage operator in the borough of Rugby.
There are two types of licence:
- site licence
- collector's licence
A 'collector' is anyone who collects from door-to-door.
A 'site' licence authorises the holder to carry on business at any site in the council's area identified in the licence. Anyone who collects from pre-arranged appointments only would need a site licence.
Scrap metal does not necessarily have to be physically stored at a site for a business to be carried on there.
