    WK55323

    1. Scope

    This guide will provide for accurate characterization of recyclable material streams collected from commercial sources for the purpose of valuation of material streams, process design and management, as well as reporting to governmental agencies in order to provide a standard method for use by industry, government, or academic organizations where such data is required.


    Keywords

    recycling; industrial scrap;

    Rationale

    The recent growth of commercial recycling has resulted in the need for accurate characterization of recyclable material streams collected from commercial sources. This is necessary for the purpose of valuation of material streams, process design and management, as well as reporting to governmental agencies. Sampling methods specific to those materials collected from commercial sources are needed in order to provide a standard method for use by industry, government, or academic organizations where such data is required.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
