Selling Scrap in Vermont

The most important piece of advice, that we give to newcomers to the scrap metal industry, is to learn the basic laws that regulate the buying and selling of scrap metal in your region. The scrap metal industry is heavily regulated to combat the theft, and not knowing the laws will cost you time and money. The US is more complex, since each state has its own laws. Ranging from easy and lenient to very strict. Vermont is one of the more lenient states in the US in terms of scrap metal laws. We have been through all the legislation and summarized the main points. Everything else the scrap yard will take care of.

First, before leaving the house make sure to bring ID. It sounds dumb, but so many people don't realize that ID is required to sell scrap. This is not only true in Vermont but it's true for the whole of the US. Scrap yards in Vermont are required to keep a record of each transaction for at least 5 years. So they will keep a copy of your ID, photograph of the material and yourself. Law enforcement have the power to enforce a tag and hold for up to 20 days on any material that is currently part of an investigation. As you can see the laws in Vermont are not too restrictive as for example there is no restriction on payment methods. Now that you know the basics, it is important to know where you can find the best scrap yards in the states.

We have researched a some of the larger cities to find the best scrap yards in Vermont. Let's start with the state capital, Montpelier. Our recommendations for the best scrap yard Bolduc Metal Recycling. Vermont's largest city, Burlington, has only about four scrap yards in total. Our recommendation is All Metal Recycling, however, our research shows that they are all very good. For those in South Burlington, Rutland, Barre or anywhere else in the state.
