Scrap Metal Permit Application and Procedure

Per the Code of Virginia (59.1-117). citizens wishing to sell, trade, or purchase secondhand scrap metal must obtain a permit from the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office. The Code states that a permit is required for:

“trading in secondhand building fixtures. Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, no person shall offer for sale or acquire any secondhand heating or plumbing fixtures or supplies, electric fixtures or any wiring, gas fixtures or appliances, water faucets, pipes, locks, bathtubs, gutters, downspouts, or other secondhand fixtures of whatever kind or description pertaining to a building or structure, without first obtaining a permit for the sale or acquisition of the same from the chief of police of the city or town or the sheriff of the county in which such property is offered for sale or acquisition.”
