Nebraska Scrap Metal Prices - USA

Selling Scrap in Nebraska

Nebraska is a relatively small Midwestern State that only has close to 2 million inhabitants. It has been inhabitated by different indigenous peoples for thousands of years before the settlers came her.

It has a diverse economy that is mainly blue collar, with sectors such as agriculture, transportation and manufacturing being the main players. Therefore scrap metal is also in demand here and you can successfully make some good money on the side selling it.

We have done the research to find out the scrap metal laws in Nebraska. We'll go through the main thing that you should know to make your experience making money from scrap metal much simpler.

Nebraska actually has some of the most relaxed laws in the United States when it comes to selling scrap metal, so there is much less to remember. To combat the theft of copper and certain car parts, whenever a scrap yard buys either scrap copper or scrap car parts they must take the fingerprints and ID of the seller. All transactions must be recorded and all records must be kept for at least one year by law. In terms of payment, any transaction over $25 must be paid by check. Also any transaction for copper or car parts must also be paid by check regardless of the price.
