If a plastic chair were PP, but had two small details in ABS (amounting to 2% of the product) could I instruct consumers to recycle it? I could say “after removing blank detail, please recycle”.
Question is, is it normal to ask a consumer to remove a part. I know it is a concept which is talked about a lot, but is it employed.
Also, if the part is broken during removal, we may be libel for a cut on their hand or God forbid a split part that lands in the eye.
This is worst case scenario, I have removed the detail myself and nothing bad happened.
I am looking for input from people who work in manufacturing and have been through this.
