Men apprehended at Scrap Yard

Property theft hits businesses across the country. It costs them millions of dollars every year. Copper is a popular target. Copper thieves can rip out and destroy HVAC units in minutes, resulting in property damage and significant financial loss. It is such a common problem that insurance companies are beginning to exclude metals from their policies due to the risk.

Metal and most particularly copper theft has become more of a public issue. Reputable scrap dealers ask for papers and documentation before they’ll take copper scrap. This amount of scrutiny makes it more difficult to sell copper that’s been stolen from these scrap yards. Combining enhanced security measures makes copper and other metals harder to steal in the first place.
