Low Scrap Metal Prices have lead to less Scrap Metal theft

Low Scrap Metal Prices have lead to less Scrap Metal theft

Scrap Metal theft has gone down this has made the police become more relaxed in their approach in catching unlicensed scrap dealers, unfortunately lots of unlicensed scrap dealers have sprung up in the last few months offering cash and sometimes even better rates than the licensed scrap dealers.

As far as I know it is an offence to sell your metal a unlicensed scrap dealer for cash, also scrap metal is a form of waste so it is also an offence to not have a proper paper trial in the form of waste transfer notes. 

We are a fully Insured and Licensed Scrap Dealer and will give you the correct paperwork once we have weighed and paid for your metal.

Sheraz Mohayudin of Gama Halal Meat Butchers in Ealing Road, was slapped with the £1,855.50 fine at Willesden Magistrates’ Court after it was proven that he illegally dumped a large commercial fridge on the street.
The fridge was found and reported to the council by Veolia, its waste and recycling contractor.
Dennis Lewis, waste enforcement manager at Brent Council, said: “Illegally dumped rubbish is a serious issue and once reported to the council we will take all necessary measures to investigate the incident and won’t hesitate to prosecute the offenders”.
Brent Council has launched a ‘love where you live’ campaign urging residents to report any instances of illegal dumping to improve their neighbourhoods.
Cllr Eleanor Southwood, Brent Council’s lead member for the environment, said: “Most residents in Brent ‘Love where they live’ and make an effort to keep their streets clean and green. That’s why it’s so upsetting when people illegally dump rubbish; it brings down the appearance of the area and everyone suffers.
“Individuals and businesses need to know that we’ll come down on them hard if they dump their rubbish like this.
“If you ‘Love where you live’, please report illegally dumping rubbish with our Cleaner Brent app or email customer.services@brent.gov.uk.”
