It requires scrap processors and recycling operations to maintain records of all transactions of more than $100 for two years. The records must include a photocopy of the seller’s driver’s license, the license plate number for the seller’s vehicle, a description and weight of the purchased material and amount paid for it. The law bars these firms from purchasing specific items such as beer kegs and catalytic converters that are often stolen from someone other than commercial sellers. Dealers face a $2,500 fine for a first offense.
