Issue: We expect that S. 394, a metals theft bill unfavorable to our industry, will be brought to the floor of the U.S. Senate as early as today, using a procedure known as “hotlining” (also called “unanimous consent”) which requires each and every Senator to first give their approval to move the bill to the floor for a vote. A single objection will stop the vote from occurring and force it into “regular order” making it vulnerable to filibuster. As S.394 is not seen as a bill of major national significance and therefore not worthy of risking a filibuster, the bill would then likely be stopped from moving any further at this point, which is what we need at this time. If we learn that the bill will be br... read more

In the business world, technology has evolved to improve operations in various industries over the years, and the scrap metal and recycling industry is no different.

Completing tickets and work orders generally involves obtaining a considerable amount of information from customers and clients so that the yard or recycling center is in compliance. In this way, inventory control, compliance and customer services are all related. Because they are linked, many companies are already taking advantage of the latest technology availabl... read more

The Senate is moving to make metal theft a federal crime, with the Judiciary Committee poised to take action later this week on a bill that would impose a 10-year prison sentence on anyone caught stealing metal from telephone or cell towers, highway equipment or other critical infrastructure. Copper theft is a particular problem, with the average annual price on global markets quadrupling over the past decade. The bill would also make it tougher to fence stolen metal by requiring more record-keeping for recycling agents, and prohibiting them from paying cash for purchases larger than $100.


Sen. Amy Klobuchar, the Minnesota Democrat who wrote the bill, said metal theft has jumped more than 80 percent in recent years, and people have stolen from homes, churches and e... read more
