The ISRI Board of Directors will consider the following proposed changes to the Guidelines for Recycled Plastic that were approved by the ISRI Plastics Division on September 20, 2023 at its upcoming Fall Board Meeting in Denver, Colo. on October 18, 2023:

Revised Specifications:

  • Specification: PP Small Rigid Plastic
  • Specification: Mixed Small Rigid Plastic
  • Specification: Mixed Bulky Rigid Plastic

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 Specifications can be found in the ISRI Specifications. To submit comments, recommendations, or questions please contact ISRI Chief Economist Joe Pickard ([email protected]) or ISRI Senior Economist Bret Biggers ([email protected]). If adopted or amended, there will be an open comment period for 30 days following the vote by the Board.

These three proposed revisions combine nine expecting specifications to reflect current trading in the marketplace. ISRI would like to thank the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) for contributing their expertise in the development of these revisions.
