In an effort to curb metal theft, CA Gov. Jerry Brown has recently signed into law AB 2312. The law requires that all scrap metal recyclers in California to subscribe to a regional alert system that logs reported stolen items within 100 miles of their operation. The theft alert system is hosted by the Institute of Scrap Metals Recycling (ISRI) and is provided free of charge to recyclers and law enforcement. The new law adds additional protections over existing law – which requires that recyclers and other second-hand materials dealers maintain transaction records and perform due diligence on the sources of their incoming materials.
For an additional resource on preventing metal theft, see the San Diego Police Department’s Neighborhood Policing Resource Team’s document here.
In addition to electronics recycling, AVR Recycling provides a wide range of scrap metal and commodities recycling solutions.
