The way in which recycling companies in Phoenix handle recycling air conditioning units has just changed dramatically.
A new law passed in Arizona has made it a criminal act for recycling companies in Phoenix to pay consumers cash for copper coils coming from recycled air conditioning units.
The new law requires that people selling the copper coils from AC units must be mailed a check for their scrap metal. Prior to this law being passed recycling companies would only pay consumers by check if their transaction for non ferrous materials was over $25.
The changes primarily effect the way scrap metal recycling companies handle the transactions.
“Not only will this impede the criminal act of selling stolen property by AC unit thieves to Phoenix Scrap Metal Recycling Companies , but it will also set apart the law abiding Recycling facilities from the non compliant ones”, said President of I Buy Scrap Metal Recycling in Phoenix, Trent Houg.
