The Texas Department of Public Safety Metals Registration Program is responsible for registering and tracking all metal recycling entities operating in the State of Texas.
Registered entities are required to collect certain identifying information from sellers of recycled material in order to aide law enforcement in tracking entities and individuals who are buying and/or selling stolen material.
The online renewal process for Metal Recycling Entity (MRE) certificates will be available beginning on Feb. 22, 2013. Each MRE statutory agent will receive an email approximately 45 days before expiration. The email will provide directions for completing the renewal application.
