VINTON, Va. -

Another part of our area has come up with its scrap metal permitting process.

A new state requires a permit to sell scrap metal, but towns, cities, and counties are in charge of coming up with thier own process to get those permits.

Yesterday, the town of Vinton leaders announced theirs.

The Vinton Police Department has completed the secondhand building fixtures scrap permit  process.

This process is now being used for those who take secondhand building fixtures to local scrap metal facilities within the Town of Vinton.

A scrap metal transaction form has to be completed each time a person takes applicable secondhand building fixture scrap to sell at local facilities.

Transaction forms and junk dealer permit applications are located on the police department's website or can be picked up at the Vinton Municipal building.

More information on the process is available at: http://www.vintonpolice.com
