To recycle material, all sellers must be 18 years of age or older with a valid government issued photo ID. We are required to collect identification including finger prints, your vehicle’s and trailer’s tag numbers, and photos of the material you bring in.

Please see Florida Statutes, and refer to our Scrap Recycling page for a complete list of what we can and cannot scrap.
