Following a conversation with the Local Communities department they have informed me that a list of scrap metal collectors with addresses or phone numbers at a minimal should be available to the Community so to discourage illegal scrap collectors in this Local Authority area and to give the local community the opportunity to use a licence collector.
Unfortunately these details are not available on the public register so I have contacted you directly. I understand your licencing Department should have this information on a database.
Thank you in respect to this request and I can assure you this list will help the Local Community to dispose of their scrap metal more efficiently and legally.
Scrap Metal Dealer information is published as a public register by the Environment Agency, rather than the local authority.
