Export licenses issued to scrap metal vendors
Minister of Industry and Commerce, Karl Samuda said more than 340 export licenses have been issued to scrap metal vendors.
Mr. Samuda said the licences were issued under the new regime to regulate the scrap metal industry, which was implemented last year. The incidents of scrap metal theft have been significantly reduced.
Mr. Samuda said a number of scrap metal sites within Riverton City are also to be certified.
However, scrap metal dealers and exporters have now formed a Scrap Metal Recyclers Association, which will allow the industry to operate more effectively.
