The price of a number of plastic grades fell last week as demand started to fall.

PET bottles lost another £5 per tonne after dropping by the same amount the week before, while HDPE bottles and LDPE 98/2 both fell by £20 per tonne.

But in the paper market, OCC increased by £3 per tonne, as did news & pam. Mixed paper went up by £2 per tonne.

In recycled metals, copper was up by £50 per tonne, while both brass and aluminium grades increased by £25 per tonne.
