ISRI, APR release common model bale specs
By Editorial Staff, Resource Recycling
The Association of Postconsumer Plastic Recyclers and the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries have joined together to release joint model bale specifications covering bulky rigids, tubs and lids with bulky, and tubs and lids without bulky.
The new model bale specs are the work of a joint Plastic Scrap Task Force set up by the organizations to create common standards and descriptive language. While each organization will continue to publish separate model bale spec guidelines, they will each conform with the agreed-upon standards. APR's model bale specifications can be found at the organization's website while ISRI's can be found on pages 39-42 of the Scrap Specifications Circular.
