Well before the law changes in 2012, Scrap Dealers were targeted and have been victimised relentlessly, in many cases unlawfully. The SMDA is here to address the problems that affect our members ranging from VAT Scams, to unlawful prosecutions and the monopoly from large businesses squeezing the smallest family run businesses out.

If you are licensed with your Local Authority , as a Scrap Yard or itinerant collector, or you have been affected by Section 146 of LASPO or the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013, you can become a member of the SMDA. We are not interested in your tonnage or profit or other licensing. We will not reject you for any reason. We are not elitist. We are here for the protection and education of our members.

Annual Membership offers:

*Seminars throughout the country teaching Members about their rights

*Support with a help line that won’t just fob members off in an emergency.

* Solutions – to the pressures and restraints being placed on our industry
