In our area, ABS is all they allow for waste lines. Even then, Home Depot does not carry ABS but Lowes and some of the local plumbing and mobile home supply stores do.
Usually this is only an issue for us when we are moving new homes in. Because it will be inspected, ABS is all we can use. I have no idea why they too only want ABS.
If you are simply making a repair and have no other alternative, give it a try. The waste and water is not pressurized so there is little stress on the joints. You can also locate black, fexible fittings as well. Unfortunately we sometimes have to get creative when no other alternative is available to us.
If nothing else works, I say give it a shot and see.
