Although the State of Alaska does not have any specific laws regarding the documentation or purchase of scrap metals, other states have set a standard that is we advise following.

In order to sell scrap metal, sellers should:

         ·            Present and allow the photocopying of a driver’s license or state ID card;

         ·            Allow the buyer to take a thumbprint;

Buyer’s should:

  • Keep a record of sellers name, address and date of sale

         ·            Buyer must report purchased vehicle information to NMVTIS

NOTE:  A person who dismantles, scraps, or destroys a registered vehicle shall immediately forward to the Department of Transportation the certificates of title and registration and the registration plates for the vehicle.

A person who operates, establishes, or maintains a junk yard in any location without procuring a certificate of approval is guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction is punishable by a fine of not more than $500, or by imprisonment for a term of not more than one year, or by both.

A person may not engage in the business of junk dealer or metal scrapper in this state without obtaining an annual license from the Department of Revenue. A person who violates this section is guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction is punishable by a fine of not more than $100 or imprisonment for not more than 90 days.

Auto-Parts Salvage/Recycling

         ·            For tires – Alaska’s Solid Waste Management plan includes, but does not deal specifically with, scrap tires. Tires are generally landfilled (tire piles may not exceed one half million tires), however, some scrap tires are used as fuel in an RDF plant within the state, and others are used as liner in an Anchorage landfill. Most local municipalities throughout Alaska, such as Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau, accept tires at their recycling facilities, and some private recycling facilities also accept used tires. In addition, some city or borough governments in Alaska have regulations against dumping and/or a local waste management program.

For a list of recycling facilities that accept tires, visit the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation’s Solid Waste Resources Web Site
