Scrap dealers in cities and towns
across the country face the daily task
of determining if a customer is trying
to peddle stolen material or if the
transaction, like most, involves legitimate scrap.
The scrap industry has issued a list
of recommended practices to share
with scrap dealers to decrease their
chances of accepting stolen metals.
These recommendations are detailed
in a new document from the Institute
of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI),
“Recommended Practices and
Procedures for Minimizing the Risks
of Purchasing Stolen Scrap
The recommendations serve to
enhance existing procedures. They
also are intended to allow scrap dealers to adopt the practices that are
most appropriate for their facility and
have the greatest likelihood of having a positive effect.
The recommendations include
building working relationships with
local law enforcement; requiring
identification from the seller; making
payment by check or ATM; using
tracing methods for cash transactions; capturing transactions on
video surveillance; training employees to identify suspicious materials;
and prohibiting certain items, such as
clearly identifiable new production
materials or items used only by governments and utility companies,
unless they are accompanied by proper authorizations.
