Scrap Metal Dealers Licence

The Act requires those persons and businesses involved in the buying or selling of scrap metal or motor salvage to be licensed by the local authority.

There are two licences depending on what business the dealer undertakes:

  • A site licence is required for businesses that take in scrap metal or vehicles and either store scrap metal for sale or future sale or process it

  • A collectors licence for those that have a business of collecting scrap, for example door to door or from business and then sell it on the scrap yards or motor salvage yards

You can request an application form online, download the form here or email  licensing@lincoln.gov.uk.

The licence requires a basic disclosure as part of the application process.

More information on the basic disclosure can be found here:  www.disclosurescotland.co.uk/apply-online
