California bill that will place restrictions on how scrap metal
sellers can be paid has been awaiting approval from Gov. Jerry
Brown since Sept. 3.
The bill amends the
states Business and Professions Code and will force
nonferrous scrap sellers to wait three days before receiving
This rule previously
applied only to transactions exceeding $20. Customers who are
redeeming $20 or less worth of beverage containers can be paid
in cash at the time of the sale.
A recycler in the state said he is hoping the governor
doesnt sign the bill because it is unjust and will raise
operating costs for businesses.
