Glass, aluminium and recovery PRNs edge lower, paper up


The price of some packaging recovery notes has dropped lower, while paper has widened its spread a little.

On the scrap-ex weekly PRN price report, glass PRNs were trading at between £7.65 to £8.50 per tonne compared to £7.80 to £8.50 last time.


Aluminium was also a little lower at £4.85 to £6.00 this week compared to £5 to £6 in the last report.

Recovery PRNs edged down to £0.50 to £0.75 per tonne from £0.55 to £0.75 last time.

Paper however, increased to £1.15 to £1.50 per tonne up only slightly from £1.15 to £1.45 in the last report. All other PRN prices remained the same.

scrap-ex director Gareth Goodall said: “People are coming back from the holiday period and realising they have PRNs to sell as they look to clear books as Q3 moves into Q4, but not finding many buyers.”
