KINGSTON, Jamaica — Minister of Industry, Investment and Commerce Anthony Hylton this morning declared the scrap metal trade officially opened with inspection at two Corporate Area sites.

“The trade is now opened and we are calling on all players involved to play their part to make the trade successful,” Hylton declared at the Riverton City site in St Andrew.

The other Corporate Area site is located at 1 Elspeth Avenue off Hagley Park Road.

But there was no trading activity at a third designated scrap metal site located in Clarendon.  

According to an officer from the Ministry the processing site at Clarendon Park is still being upgraded, and is scheduled to open later this week. 

The Factories Corporation will operate the three facilities. 

The central scrap metal processing sites reopened Monday after being closed down since July 2011 due to a high rate of metal theft.

Hylton Monday implored stakeholders to ensure that they operated above board.
