3832 - Recycling of wasteDefinition / Belongs to this divisionThis division includes the processing of scrap metal and non-metal scrap into secondary raw materials, which usually requires a physical or chemical transformation process.
Examples of mechanical or chemical transformation processes are:
- mechanical pressing of scrap metal e.g. used car, washing machine, bicycle, etc.
- large iron objects e.g. cutting of railway carriages
- shredding of scrap metal by end-of-life vehicles, etc.
- other volume-reducing mechanical machining, e.g. cutting, pressing
- extraction of metal content of photographic wastes e.g. fixing fluid, films, photo paper
- extraction of the rubber content of used tires for the production of secondary raw materials
- sorting, crushing and pelletizing plastics to produce tubes, flower pots, mattresses and similar secondary raw materials
- processing of plastic or rubber waste (by cleaning, melting, grinding, shredding) to produce granules
- crushing, cleaning and sorting of glass waste
- crushing, cleaning and sorting other wastes e.g. demolition waste for the production of secondary raw materials
- processing of cooking oil and fat to produce secondary raw materials
- processing of other waste from food, beverages and tobacco and residues to produce secondary raw materials
also belongs to this sectorThis division also includes:
- the following forms of waste recycling:
(1) sorting and classification of recyclable materials from non-hazardous waste (household, industrial waste); or
(2) sorting recyclable but mixed materials such as e.g. paper, plastic, used bottles, metals into different categories.
