Purchase and sale of recyclable materials
Purchase of paper
Our waste paper recycling centres ensure purchase of wastepaper from citizens and commercial entities. Wastepaper includes:
- old newspapers,
- office paper,
- paper shreds.
These materials can be supplied mixed or separated. We purchase dry paper only.
For bulky supplies of wastepaper we provide transport of the material to recycling facilities.
For entities involved in the purchase of recyclable materials we negotiate with recycling facilities directly.
Purchase of scrap metal
Firstly, scrap metal is weighed on a special weighing scale, then sorted (ferrous metals of various size, non-ferrous metals, alloys) and further dispatched or processed.
Obligations of a scrapyard operator:
- The operator is obliged to check a person´s identity card before making a purchase of raw materials.
- The operator is authorised to check a person´s identity card.
- The operator is obliged to keep records of these persons and the supplied waste.
The operator is obliged to keep records of the following items with their detailed description enabling their additional identification after the purchase or collection:
- public property items,
- works of art,
- religious artefacts,
The operator is obliged not to dismantle or alter these items or pass them on for 48 hours after the purchase.
The objective of these precautions is to minimize theft of private and public items made of metal.
