Secondhand Building Materials "Junk Dealer" Permit Process
As of July 1, 2013, those who sell secondhand building materials to scrap processors will need to comply with a new permit process. All the information pertaining to this new law and the permit process can be found within the "Services Division" section of this website, where a complete explanation of these new requirements will be provided. Please pay special attention to the exemptions listed within the code section, as these do not require a permit. An average turnaround time for this permit process is expected to be 3-4 days.
