The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) board of directors will consider an amendment to ISRI’s scrap specifications that will reclassify “Any paper which has the potential to be contaminated with bodily fluid” as a prohibitive, and add the words “and organic waste” to the end to better characterize inbound paper products in the recycling stream.

 

The proposal originated in an effort by the recycling industry to emphasize with outside stakeholders that this material does not have a viable end-market consumer to be economically and environmentally sustainable.
