Cash payments for metal at recycling yards in Scotland are no longer legal under new laws. Therefore in order to receive payment for your scrap we must see ID. There are two options for payment, Cheque Exchange or BACS, please see below the ID requirements for both.
To allow our customers to still walk away with cash, S. McIlwraiths (Recycling) Ltd acts as a Cheque Exchange agent. Inline with other merchants there will be a 3% commission on all cheques cashed. Lower than what you will find on the high street!
For this payment option we require 2 forms of ID:
- 1 photo ID
- 1 address document
For more information, please refer to the Cheque Exchange ID Requirements section below:
A BACS payment allows customers to receive their payment through their bank account. A BACS payment is processed everyday and the balance will show in your bank account the following morning.
For this payment option we require 1 form of photo ID:
- Current Passport
- Current UK/EU Photocard Driving License
Plus your bank details
