Tech/Engineering - Environment & Ecology / Waste management
German term or phrase: Abfallposition
From a waste management price list:

"Annahmepauschale pro Anlieferung and ausgewiesener Abfallposition"

"item" doesn't sound right, especially as I've used "item" elsewhere to man "item of waste" - any ideas?
TIA!
