The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) Board of Directors will consider the addition of two new specifications to the ISRI Scrap Specifications Circular at its upcoming Winter Meeting on February 21, 2020.

Inbound Residential Single Stream Specification:
Inbound Residential Single Stream is the material derived from a recycling method whereby residents of a community place allowed materials in a specifically designated receptacle to be left at a drop off point outside their residence. The purpose of the specification is to give Material Recovery Facilities (MRFs) and municipalities a com-mon vernacular to negotiate the items that comprise the material stream derived from a single stream curbside collection program. The specifications describe not only the items that should be part of the system, but prohibitives and other materials that could be considered contaminants (View the entire specification).

Inbound Residential Dual Stream Specification:  
Inbound Residential Dual Stream is the material derived from a recycling method whereby residents of a community place allowed materials in a specifically designated receptacle to be left at a drop off point outside their residence. The purpose of the specification is to give MRFs and municipalities a common vernacular to negotiate the items that comprise the material stream derived from a single stream curbside collec-tion program. The specifications describe not only the items that should be part of the system, but prohibitives and other materials that could be considered contaminants (View the entire specification).

The proposed specifications were previously approved by ISRI's Plastics Division in September 2019, and MRF Committee in July 2019. The full Board may choose to adopt, amend, or reject the recommendations of the Division or table them pending further review. More information about the rules governing the procedures from the addition, amendment, or withdrawal of ISRI's scrap specifications can be found in the Scrap Specifications Circular.
