Arizona Scrap Laws

Title 44, Chapter 11, Article 3.1 of the Arizona Revised Statutes

According to Arizona scrap laws, all purchases must be paid for by nontransferrable check to be mailed to the physical address on the seller's photo.  Recyclers and scrap dealers must not buy scrap metal from the same customer more than once per day.  Arizona scrap dealers must obtain a photocopy of the seller's driver's license, a photo of the metal, including description and weight of material, a video or photo of the seller, the seller's right index fingerprint and a description of the seller's vehicle and its license plate number.  There is a 15-day tag-and-holdpolicy when instructed to do so by law enforcement.  Recyclers must contact the Department of Public Safety within 24 hours of a sale and must upload the receipt electronically.
