Nevada mulls bill requiring online report of scrap buys

Keywords: Tags  scrap metal legislation, Nevada legislature, electronic reporting, scrap transactions, Lisa Gordon

PITTSBURGH — Nevada metal recyclers could be required to report transactions electronically if a recently introduced bill is approved.

The legislation would authorize local law enforcement agencies to establish an electronic reporting system that would record details of scrap metal purchases. Metal recyclers operating in a jurisdiction where law enforcement decides to adopt such a system would be required to upload the previous day’s sales before noon.

The system would be secure, and accessible only to scrap metal processors and law enforcement agencies.

Any jurisdiction adopting the system would have to file an annual report indicating whether the system helped lower metal thefts.

Recyclers operating in areas not using an electronic system will continue to be required to maintain sales records.

A Nevada Senate committee hearing on the bill is scheduled for March 18.
