The recent growth of residential single-stream recycling has resulted in a rapidly growing industry based on the community desire to divert volumes of solid waste from landfills. Resultingly, the need for accurate characterization of a heterogeneous recyclable material stream is necessary for the purpose of valuation of mixed material streams, process design, and management, as well as regulatory compliance. Sampling methods specific to those materials collected from municipal residential sources are needed 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.
