This guide provides information for the development of standards (guides, practices, terminology, test methods, or specifications) relating to plastics recycling and other means of waste reductions and resource recovery.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D20 on Plastics, this guide was withdrawn in January 2015 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.
1.1 This guide provides information for the development of standards (guides, practices, terminology, test methods, or specifications) relating to plastics recycling and other means of waste reductions and resource recovery.
1.2 This guide is directed to consumer, commercial, and industrial sources of thermoplastics and thermoset polymeric materials.
1.3 This guide addresses terminology, performance standards, specifications, quality assurance, separation or segregation of product by classes, identification and marking of generic classes, contaminants, fillers, designing for recycle, degradable products, reconstituted products, biobased resins, certification and percentages of recycled products, and other methods of waste reduction and resource recovery.
1.4 This guide does not address parameters or factors involving the original manufacture of virgin polymers or the fabrication of consumer products from these virgin polymers.
1.5 This guide is intended to replace Guide D 5033.
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.Note 1
There is no equivalent ISO standard. ISO/DIS 15270 is similar in scope and content.
