Material to be bought/sold under this guideline shall be identified as “Zorba” with a number to follow in dicating the estimated percentage non ferrous metal content of the material (e.g., “Zorba 90” means the material contains approximately 90% non ferrous metal content). May also be screened to perm it description by specific size ranges.
