LDPE Furniture Mix Description: Any mixture of natural Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) film used for sofa overwrap, bubble wrap, mattress bags, and Linear Low-Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) stretch film and polyethylene thin foam, which is white and gray foam backed with LDPE film. Color contribution can be only from the white foam, gray foam backed with LDPE film, and blue mattress bags. The mass shall consist of 70% to 80% LDPE and/or LLDPE films and the remaining 20-30%, polyethylene foam. Films may be coded with ASTM D7611 resin identification code “#4, LDPE/LLDPE.” Product: LDPE or LLDPE Film and Foam Source: Sorted Film generated after meeting its intended use from commercial establishments. Contamination: Total contaminants should not exceed 10% by weight. ALLOWABLE CONTAMINANTS AT LOW LEVELS: These contaminants are tolerable at low levels. The following contaminants should not exceed 5% by weight of any of the following “individual” contaminants, unless noted otherwise. • Non-polyethylene other plastics such as nonwoven PP, EPS, TPU • HDPE (#2) film • Labels • Loose paper, cardboard (OCC), including cardboard endcaps • Moisture residues (2% maximum) • Wood • Miscellaneous small metal such as screws CONTAMINANTS NOT ALLOWED: If present, these contaminants may result in rejection. • Any non-PE films, metallized films, or multi-material pouches • PE film packaging exposed to hazardous materials, such as flammable, corrosive or reactive products, pesticides or herbicides • Silicone coated film • Film with oxo or bio-degradable additives, PVDC layers, or acrylic coatings • Any rigid plastic bottle, container or packaging including PET (#1), HDPE (#2), PVC (#3), LDPE/LLDPE (#4), PP (#5), PS (#6), Other (#7) and compostable plastic (e.g. PLA and PHA) • Any bulky rigid plastic • Food waste • Free-flowing liquids • Textiles • Metal, Glass • Batteries • Electronics scrap, including items with circuit boards or battery packs • Bio-Medical waste/items (e.g., syringe, sharps, gloves, masks • Rocks, stones, mud, oils, grease General: Refer to the General Information section for additional information. PE Agricultural Film (Grade A) Any mixture of High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) and Linear LowDensity Polyethylene (LLDPE) film that has not been used on the ground for agriculture or farming and that has limited soil or vegetation contact is acceptable. Examples are greenhouse film and hoophouse film. Films may be coded with ASTM D7611 resin identification code “#2, HDPE” or “#4, LDPE/LLDPE.” Product: PE Film Source: PE film from agricultural sources Contamination: Total contami nat i on should not exceed 20% by wei ght .
