Secondary Metal Recycler Laws
Georgia’s laws dealing with secondary metals or “scrapping” have changed significantly. Amendments made in 2012 to the Regulated Metals Recycling Law (O.C.G.A. §§10-1-350 through 10-1-363) significantly change how the metal recycling industry conducts business.
These changes now require anyone meeting the definition of a Secondary Metals Recycler must now register with the county sheriff.
A Secondary Metals Recycler is anyone engaged in Georgia in the business of paying compensation for the purchase of Regulated Metal Property whether or not the person operates from a fixed location or otherwise and whether or not the person is engaged in converting such property into raw material products. This includes any person located in a residence buying metals or buying metals from a truck parked on public or private property.
The Regulated Metals Recycling Law impacts almost every aspect of a Secondary Metal Recycler’s business operations including recordkeeping, the form of payment for purchase transactions, hours of operation, types of Regulated Metal Property it may purchase and from whom it may purchase the metals.
They may no longer pay cash for purchases (other than in exempt transactions). Their business hours have been reduced. They must obtain and retain in their records additional information regarding purchase transactions. Purchases of certain types of Regulated Metal Property (air conditioning coils, burned copper wire and burial memorials) are restricted to certain sellers with proper licenses or documentation. Finally, recyclers will be subject to more stringent penalties for failure to comply with the law.
Carroll County Sheriff's Office- Update October 2012
One of the fast-growing public health and safety problems is lurking in your medicine cabinet. Because the rates of prescription and over-the-counter medication abuse and accidental poisonings and overdoses are on the rise across the country, Sheriff Terry Langley and the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office is teaming up with the Drug Enforcement Administration to offer our local citizens a way to properly dispose of the substances. Seven days a week, twenty-four (24) hours a day, you can bring in your outdated or unused medication to the Carroll County Jail lobby and place it in a secure container to be disposed of properly. There will be no paperwork or questions asked. We value the partnership that we have with you and want your home to be as safe as possible.
Carroll County Sheriff's Office is proud to announce it is now a State of Georgia Certified Agency
On September 15, 2010 the Carroll County Sheriff's Office became only the 15th Sheriff’s Office to become certified in the State of Georgia out of 159 counties. Less that 15% of agencies eligible to achieve the State Certification have accomplished this objective. We are very proud of our employees for the effort and professionalism they have displayed as we achieved this goal.
