However, in case of a rented building waste or unusable paper not ordinarily deposited in waste receptacles must be turned over to the contractor. Although turned over directly to the contractor, the waste paper will be reported to the Procurement Division which will bill the contractor on the basis of the poundage removed, less 1 pound for each sack, and credit to Miscellaneous Receipts of the Treasury all payments other than those specifically permitted by law to be paid into reimbursable appropriations.
