American National Standard for Waste and Recycling

Side Load Collection Vehicle

American National Standards (ANSs) are essential tools used in every industry. They are voluntary and serve U.S. interests well because all materially affected stakeholders have the opportunity to work together to create them. These standards only become mandatory when, and if, they are adopted or referenced by the government or when market forces make them imperative.
