Georgia's Recycler Law

Georgia's New Secondary Metal Recycler Law

Pursuant to O.C.G.A. § 10-1-360, secondary metals recyclers who purchase regulated metal property in any quantity
must register with the appropriate sheriff's office(s) beginning July 1, 2012.

  • The recycler must submit a completed registration form in person to Sgt. Mike Howell. Sgt. Howell can be reached at
    (770) 940-4915 or through email.
  • The recycler must also submit a copy of the driver's license or other identification along with the registration documents.
  • If the recycler is a qualified alien, secure and verifiable documentation must be attached to the application. A list of verifiable documents is included below.
  • Annually collect a non-refundable registration fee of $200, which must be remitted to the county governing authority. Registrations cannot be considered without full payment of $200.
  • Each registration is valid for a twelve month period beginning with the effective date of registration established by the sheriff's office once all registration requirements are met.

How the Appropriate County of Registration is Determined

  • Business (Corporation or Partnership) :
    The recycler registering as a business must register with the sheriff in county where the place of operation is maintained. If the recycler maintains a place of operation in more than one county, he/she must register the business in each county.
  • Individual (Sole Proprietor):
    An individual must register in the county where he/she resides.
  • Non-resident of Georgia:
    A recycler who is not a resident of Georgia must register in the county where he/she primarily engages or intends to operate as a secondary metals recycler.
