Big rise seen in price of HDPE bottles


Last week’s Intelligence report showed that HDPE bottles has jumped up by £50 per tonne.

This significant increase came on the back of increased domestic and export demand.

Otherwise, plastic grades were all stable.

In the paper sector, OCC was down £1 per tonne, news & pam was up £1 and mixed was stable – although most interest remains in mixed at the moment.

Copper increased by £100 per tonne but most other metal grades were stable.
