According to Alabama scrap laws, dealers must maintain records of transactions on site for a minimum of one year. They are prohibited from paying cash for sales of copper, air conditioners or parts of catalytic converters exceeding $50 and for sales of all other material exceeding $500. Checks must be made payable to the name and address of the seller and be mailed to his or her recorded address or picked up by the seller. There is a 15-day tag-and-hold policy when notified by law enforcement. It is unlawful to purchase or possess any scrap wire, pedestalor other equipment marked as belongingto any public utility, government entity, railroad, school, graveyard or private business without written proof that the seller is entitled to sell such materials.
