The Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration released an opinion on the taxability of protein recycling.

A company collected recyclable protein from food processing plants and converted it into a protein product. It then sold the product to customers for blending into animal feed. As part of its business, the company charged the food processing plants for collecting the recyclable materials.

Although Arkansas taxes the collection and disposal of solid waste, "solid waste" does not include recyclable material that will be reprocessed or reused. In this case, the recyclable protein was reprocessed. Because the proteins were not "solid waste", the company did not have to collect tax on its charges for collecting the recyclable protein.
