ABSTRACT
The article discusses the ruling on the case Safe Food & Fertilizer v. EPA, where the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rule exempting zinc-bearing hazardous secondary materials (HSM) from the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) was upheld. The court upheld the rationale that HSM cannot be considered discarded under RCRA if they are managed as valuable commodities. The court established that reuse in an off-site process can be considered legitimate recycling. It also endorsed a framework for reductions in the regulatory burden associated with recycling.
