(ii)

After weighing and recording the weight of the sample, run the entire sample through a 3 inch sieve. Collect materials that are over 3 inches in size and determine the percent by weight of the sample. Run the materials that are less than 3 inches in size through a #4 sieve , which has a square opening size of 0.187 inches. Collect the fine materials that pass through the #4 sieve and determine the percent by weight of the sample. Save the fine materials that did not pass through the #4 sieve for the physical separation step. Report gradation results as a percent by weight of the total sample for the following components:

3 inch plus

Fines (#4 minus)

(iii)

Take the material that did not pass the #4 sieve and separate manually into the following components:

Plastics (including carpet, PVC and plastic coated wire)

Treated wood, including painted treated wood

Painted wood

Non-combustible materials ( exclusive of rocks, brick and concrete)

Combustible materials

Weigh each component and determine the percent by weight of the total sample for each.

(iv)Determine the non-combustible (ash) weight of the fine materials by burning off the organic component of the fines in a high temperature furnace and weighing the resultant ash. Combine the weight of the ash with the weight of the non- combustible materials collected through visual examination and divide by the total sample weight.

(v)Complete a report narrative, clearly identifying the sample that was analyzed, describing the analytical procedures used and provide the following data results as the percent of total sample by weight:

3 inch plus

Fines (#4minus)

Plastics (including carpet, PVC and plastic coated wire)

Treated wood

Painted wood

Non-combustible materials (exclusive of rocks, brick and concrete)

Non-combustible content (ash fines and non-combustible materials)
