Marlborough scrap metal dealer prosecuted for not having a licence

Wiltshire Council has successfully prosecuted an individual for collecting scrap metal without a scrap metal dealer’s licence as part of a clampdown on illegal scrap traders in Wiltshire.  

On Tuesday 27 November 2018 Richard Whiting, 45, of Armines, Marlborough pleaded guilty in Swindon Magistrates Court to collecting scrap without a scrap metal dealer’s licence.  Mr Whiting was ordered to pay a total of £1,000 in fines, costs and victim surcharge.

Bridget Wayman, cabinet member for highways, transport and waste, said “We encourage our residents to be vigilant when dealing with scrap metal collectors and to check they are licensed by Wiltshire Council to collect scrap metal or scrap vehicles within Wiltshire Council’s area.  Any scrap collector should clearly display their photo licence on their vehicle and residents are asked to view it before conducting any transactions.”

It is illegal for any scrap metal dealer to purchase or sell scrap metal from anyone using cash.  Only electronic or cheque payments may be used. The public are advised to be extremely cautious of ‘cash for scrap’ operators within the county.  Any scrap metal dealer in Wiltshire must have a valid scrap metal dealer’s licence and upper tier waste carrier’s licence.  Scrap metal dealers’ licences are issued by Wiltshire Council and waste carriers’ licences are issued by the Environment Agency.

People can report unlicensed scrap metal collectors using www.wiltshire.gov.uk/mywiltshire-online-reporting.
