Metals Theft Laws

The most effective way to address the problem of metal theft is through a comprehensive strategy focusing first on efforts to prevent metal theft to the maximum extent practicable and second on assisting law enforcement and prosecutors in their efforts to catch, prosecute, and penalize those who perpetrate these thefts to the extent necessary to dissuade their colleagues from a similar path.

To this end, Florida Recyclers Association has worked closely with the state legislature and law enforcement agencies to bring about Florida laws to prevent metals thefts.
