The Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013:
The Scrap Metal Dealers Act (SMDA) 2013 came into force on 1 October 2013, when new licence applications to work as a dealer were first accepted by local councils. The newer Act repealed earlier Acts and created a revised regulatory regime for the scrap metal recycling and vehicle dismantling industries in England and Wales. It is illegal for anyone to buy scrap metal using cash.

How to pay
Instead, dealers can pay using a crossed cheque, a prepaid card system or an electronic transfer of funds. Scrap metal dealers must also verify the identity of all sellers. Sellers must bring either a valid photographic ID that also sets out their full residential address or a formal document such as a utility bill and a valid photographic ID. Valid forms of ID include a passeport and photocard driving licence. Acceptable formal documents include bank or building society statements, utility bills or council tax documents.
