Section E-2--Plastic Fencing Containing Recovered Plastic for Specified

establish minimum content standards for use in purchasing plastic
fencing for use in controlling snow or sand drifting and as a warning/
safety barrier in construction or other applications.

Note: EPA's recommendation does not preclude a procuring agency from
purchasing fencing manufactured from another material, such as wood.
It simply requires that a procuring agency, when purchasing plastic
fencing, purchase this item made with recovered materials when this
item meets applicable specifications and performance requirements.
Specifications: The State of New York developed a specification for
orange-colored plastic fencing used for snow barriers, warning
barriers, and safety barriers, but discontinued its use because the
state did not purchase enough fencing to warrant maintaining the
specification. Height varied, depending on application, from four to
six feet. Weight varied from 17 pounds per 100 foot section for warning
barriers to 48 pounds per 100 foot section for snow fencing to 66
pounds per 100 foot section for six-foot safety barrier fencing. The
New York specification also addressed mesh size, porosity, service
temperature range, and strength for each application. A copy of this
specification is available from the RCRA Hotline by calling 1-800-424-
