You need an automotive salvage recycler license if you want to do any of the following:
· Sell a used major component part of a motor vehicle. · Wreck, dismantle, shred, compact, crush, or otherwise destroy a motor vehicle so you can sell the major component parts or scrap material. · Rebuild a wrecked or dismantled motor vehicle for resale. · Engage in the business of storing, disposing, salvaging, or recycling of motor vehicles, vehicle hulks, or parts of motor vehicles.
We encourage those wanting to obtain their recycler license in the State of Indiana to review the applicable state statutes (Indiana Code 9-32) and administrative rules (Indiana Administrative Code Title 75) regarding dealer licensing. Indiana statutes and rules can be found on the General Assembly’s website at iga.in.gov.

*Background check results more than 60 days old at the time the application is submitted will not be accepted. **Zoning Affidavits signed by a zoning official more than 90 days prior to the date the application is submitted will not be accepted.
