These laws impose varying requirements – including purchase restrictions, recordkeeping requirements, and oftentimes reporting and hold responsibilities on scrap metal purchasers. ISRI says that the 49 states (Alaska being the exception) have passed laws intended to combat metals thefts, each with varying requirements that affect recyclers. The information will be updated throughout the year as new state laws are passed or amended, ISRI says.

The scrap market should further strengthen this year, said Joe Pickard, chief economist and director of commodities for the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries.
