Mobile Collectors Licence
About Collector's licence
A collector's licence issued by the Council authorises the licence holder to carry on business as a mobile collector in the Council's area only. A separate collector's licence is needed for each council area that a mobile collector collects scrap metal. A mobile collector can dispose or sell scrap metal in any local council area regardless of whether a collector's licence is held for that area.
A mobile collector will need a licence to buy or sell any scrap metal collected. Even if the material is provided free of charge, a licence is required in order to sell it on.
A mobile collector's licence will cover any employees working for that business. If they are not employed directly by that mobile collector's business and are self-employed, they will need their own collector's licence even if they are collecting metal from the same van as a person who has a mobile collector's licence.
