No Cash for Scrap Metal – What Next? Our Process…

As well as the cash ban, the Scottish Government has also made it a requirement for Binn Group to verify the identity of those selling the scrap metal. To verify the identity (ID) of the seller, Binn Group (‘the dealer’) must request either valid photographic ID, which also sets out the seller’s full name and residential address, or a formal document such as a utility bill, that bears the person’s full name and residential address and valid photographic ID that includes the seller’s date of birth as well as their full residential address.

Acceptable Photographic ID and Formal Documents

Acceptable photographic ID: 

  • UK passports 
  • Passports issued by a European Economic Area (EEA) state 
  • Photocard driving licences (Great Britain or Northern Ireland) 
  • Biometric immigration documents 

 Acceptable formal documents:

  • Bank or building society statements 
  • Credit or debit card statements 
  • Council tax bills/statements (linked to an address in England, Wales or Scotland) or rates bills/statements (linked to an address in Northern Ireland) 
  • Utility bills (excluding mobile telephone bills) 

All documentation presented must have been issued within three months of the date the metal is acquired by the dealer or no more than three months before the date the metal is disposed of by sale or exchange by the dealer. Binn Group offer same day transfer of payments or cheque as a payment method, and do not charge a transaction fee.
