Now, a metal recycler can fill out an application online any time, and pick up the approved permit at a later date when notified. The permitting process begins by filling out all the same appropriate information needed for a permit via an online form. A criminal history review will be performed. The permit will be issued or denied based on this review. Once approved, the applicant will be contacted by phone or email for when they can pick up their metal recycling permit at the York County Sheriff District 3 office in Rock Hill.
