Significance and Use
This guide will familiarize public officials and business and industry managers with source reduction, reuse, recycling, or disposal of steel cans.
1.1 This guide provides general information to public officials and business and industry managers regarding the source reduction, reuse, recycling, or disposal of steel cans under 5-gal (wet) or 40-lb (dry) capacity. It presents a comprehensive overview of the steel can life cycle. Fivegallon pails and larger containers, up to 55-gal drums, will be in a separate guide due to their inherently different use and management when empty.
1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
