52 Guidelines for Plastic Scrap INSTITUTE OF SCRAP RECYCLING INDUSTRIES, INC. Copyright © 2022 Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, Inc. a. PET plastic of any form b. Insulation c. Medical and hazardous waste d. Lead or cadmium stabilized rigid PVC materials, e. Materials containing asbestos fillers or reinforcement. f. Used household soil or waste plumbing lines with vis- ible bioresidue. (May have debris and paper) g. CPVC—should be separated and marketed separately— typically includes pipe and molded fittings and runners; Contamination material allowed at small percentages: a. Plastics other than PVC such as HDPE, LDPE, PP, PS b. Foamed PVC c. Liquids d. Paper & Cardboard e. Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Metals f. Rocks, Stones, Mud, Dirt g. Wood, Glass, Oils, Grease Rigid PVC—Siding Description: Typically consists of PVC siding used in resi- dential applications. May contain PVC downspouts. Not all siding is PVC and may contain PE variants, which are typically molded. Recyclability increases with additional color segregation. Product: PVC Bale Source: Installed or Uninstalled Material Technical Information: Hardness Level > 65D. Rigid PVC does not contain plasticizer and will typically measure above 65 on the Shore D scale. Explanation of the Shore Scale: Shore durometer mea- surement devices can be used to measure the indentation of a prescribed needle into the material. The test method conforms to ASTM D2240. Contamination: Prohibitives—Material not accepted at any level, 0% allowed. General: Refer to the General Information section for additional information. Rigid PVC—Pipe Description: PVC pipe that is round in shape and can be green, white, blue, purple and grey in color. Comes from installed and un-installed sources or scrap. Is mainly used in water plumbing applications. Care should be taken when compressing the bale as too much pressure will crush material and make identification and inspection difficult. Recyclability increases with additional color segregation. Product: PVC Bale Source: Installed or Uninstalled Material Technical Information: Hardness Level > 65D. Rigid PVC does not contain plasticizer and will typically measure above 65 on the Shore D scale. Explanation of the Shore Scale: Shore durometer mea- surement devices can be used to measure the indentation of a prescribed needle into the material. The test method conforms to ASTM D2240. Contamination: Prohibitives—material not accepted at any level, 0% allowed. a. CPVC (typically gray electrical conduit) b. PET plastic of any form c. Medical and hazardous waste d. Lead or cadmium stabilized rigid PVC materials, e. Materials containing asbestos fillers or reinforcement. f. Used household soil or waste plumbing lines with vis- ible bioresidue. (May have debris and paper) g. ABS Contamination material allowed at small percentages: a. Plastics other than PVC such as HDPE, LDPE, PP, PS b. Foamed PVC c. Liquids d. Paper & Cardboard e. Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Metals f. Rocks, Stones, Mud, Dirt g. Wood, Glass, Oils, Grease General: Refer to the General Information section for additional information. Rigid PVC—Window Profiles Descriptions: Typically consists of window and door frames. Sourced primarily from door and window manu- facturers. Product: PVC Bale Source: Installed or Uninstalled Material Technical Information: Hardness Level > 65D. Rigid PVC does not contain plasticizer and will typically measure above 65 on the Shore D scale. Explanation of the Shore Scale: Shore durometer mea- surement devices can be used to measure the indentation of a prescribed needle into the material. The test method conforms to ASTM D2240. Contamination: Prohibitives—material not accepted at any level, 0% allowed. a. Loose rubber weather stripping b. Glass
