“Reuse” is the introduction (or reintroduction) into an industrial, manufacturing, or disposal process of a material which would otherwise be classified as a deleterious substance. A material will be considered “used or reused” if it is either:

  1. Employed as an ingredient (including use as an intermediate) in an industrial, manufacturing, or disposal process to make or recover a product.
  2. Employed in a particular function or application as an effective substitute for a commercial product or non-deleterious substance.
