ISRI’s scrap specifications are internationally recognized guidelines used by buyers and sellers of recycled materials and products including nonferrous and ferrous scrap, glass cullet, paper stock, plastic, electronics, and tire scrap. The specifications are intended to assist in the trading of scrap commodities and are regularly reviewed and updated to reflect the expanding range of commercially recyclable materials.
