PITTSBURGH — Missouri’s Senate has approved updated scrap metal legislation, which now heads to the desk of Gov. Jay Nixon for his signature.

S.B.102 and S.B.157 update a 2008 scrap law that requires metal recyclers to maintain records on aluminum and copper transactions. Catalytic converters have been added to the list of items for which recyclers will be required to maintain sale details, including a copy of the seller’s driver’s license.

Recyclers also will have to keep a record of the photo and birthdate of the seller, as well as the license plate of the vehicle used to make the delivery.

The list of prohibited items has been expanded from property owned by cemeteries and electric utilities to include metal owned by telecommunications providers, cable providers, wireless service or other communications-related providers, and water utilities.

Payment for any transaction more than $500 will have to be transferred electronically or paid by check.
