When a public contract
be awarded to the
lowest responsible bidder or offeror, an
otherwise qualified bidder or offeror who will
contract through the
use of products made of recycled supplies
be given preference over other bidders or offerors
unable to do so, provided
that the cost included in the
is equal or less than other bids or offers, unless the
use of the product constitutes an undue practical hardship.

economic or practical hardship.
This Section applies to bid opportunities posted to the

Nothing in this Section shall be construed to apply to a
