Welcome to the Alabama Secondary Metals Recyclers System maintained by the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA).
In accordance with Alabama law (13A-8-31.2), Secondary Metals Recyclers are required to register with, and to pay a $250 annual registration fee to, ALEA to maintain the database of certain information collected by metal recyclers related to the purchase of metal products. Alabama law also requires Secondary Metals Recyclers to submit specific sales-related information into this online database maintained by ALEA no later than 9:00 p.m. on the day of the purchase transaction.
You may complete this process online (paying by credit card) or pay by check.
If you registered with ALEA (formerly, ACJIC) during the previous year, please use the same USER NAME and PASSWORD created during this process to access the system.
