Specifications presented in this repot represent first efforts to define uniform qualities of materials separated from municipal solid waste in resource recovery processing plants for subsequent sale and use. The establishment of specifications adds value to outputs and promotes acceptance by users as a result of providing basis for quality assurance. Recoverable materials investigated in this study are: folded newsprint and corrugated paper, ferrous metals, aluminum, other nonferrous metals, glass cullet, inorganic fines, mixed organics (for fuel). Indications of possible contamination were obtained on a limited scale by reviewing literature, visiting plants, and coordinating with the activities of a companion research grant which included processing pilot quantities of municipal solid waste from several cities.
