Missouri mulls tougher salvage law

Keywords: Tags  scrap metal legislation, auto recycling, Jeremy LaFaver, Lisa Gordon

PITTSBURGH — Missouri state legislators are considering a bill that would require scrap operators to obtain titles or salvage certificates before acquiring vehicles.

The legislation, sponsored by Rep. Jeremy LaFaver, would replace an existing law that allows scrap operators to purchase vehicles that are at least 10 years old without obtaining a title or salvage certificate.

The Missouri legislature last year toughened other parts of laws relevant to recyclers, including mandating that records be maintained on copper and aluminum transactions as well as requiring photographs of the seller and delivery vehicle on all purchases (, May 20).
