Section 403.7065, Florida Statutes 2009

403.7065  Procurement of products or materials with recycled content.--

(1)  Except as provided in s. 287.045, any state agency or agency of a political subdivision of the state which is using state funds, or any person contracting with any such agency with respect to work performed under contract, is required to procure products or materials with recycled content when the Department of Management Services determines that those products or materials are available. A decision not to procure such items must be based on the Department of Management Services' determination that such procurement is not reasonably available within an acceptable period of time, fails to meet the performance standards set forth in the applicable specifications, or fails to meet the performance standards of the agency. When the requirements of s. 287.045 are met, agencies shall be subject to the procurement requirements of that section for procuring products or materials with recycled content.

(2)  For the purposes of this section, "recycled content" means materials that have been recycled that are contained in the products or materials to be procured, including, but not limited to, paper, aluminum, steel, plastic, glass, and composted material. The term does not include the virgin component of internally generated scrap that is commonly used in the industrial or manufacturing processes from which it was generated or waste or scrap purchased from another manufacturer who manufactures the same or a closely related product.
