Cash payment on most materials up to $300 per day, per individual. Louisiana State Law prohibits Scrap Recyclers from paying cash for copper (insulate and bare), aluminum / copper radiators and other regulated items (see disclaimer) unless the individual has a business license and the material being sold is a byproduct of that business. If there isn’t a valid business license, payment will be made via check, payable to the individual selling the material. Louisiana State Law also requires a 5 day hold on these payments. At the completion of the 5 day hold the check will be mailed to the address listed on the ID of the individual that sold the material.
