PopScrap - Compliance Made Simple
Arkansas scrap metal recyclers are required to maintain a record of all purchases for one year. A minimum seven day tag and hold policy is in effect. Scrap metal recyclers are required to obtain fingerprints of sellers. A video or photograph must be taken of all sellers and the material being sold, including a description and the weight of material buyers must report purchased vehicle material to NMVTIS.
Additionally, after a three day waiting period they are required to pay by check to sellers who have pled guilty or have been found guilty of burglary or vandalism when the offense involved scrap metal.
