15A NCAC 13B .1504 RECYCLING PROCESS
(a) To constitute recycling, the recovered materials must be so altered in form that the original materials lose their identity and a new product is formed. A physical rather than a chemical change may be all that occurs but a substantial change in the form of the materials must occur.
(b) The recycling process ends when a new product has been created from the recovered materials, even though the complete manufacturing process involving the recycled products has not concluded.
