Idaho may step up scrap record-keeping

Keywords: Tags  scrap metal legislation, Idaho legislature, metal thefts, nonferrous scrap, stainless scrap

PITTSBURGH — Idaho legislators are considering changing an existing law to increase record-keeping for nonferrous scrap purchases.

The bill, aimed at combating metal thefts, would mandate that metal recyclers take a photograph of each customer, the delivery vehicle and the load of nonferrous or stainless steel. After a customer has been photographed three times in one year, subsequent deals won’t require photographs.

A provision was added to exclude aluminum cans from the requirement.

The legislation also would make it a felony to strip copper or nonferrous metals from utility and communications providers.
