Key paper grades only recyclable material to change value in Intelligence


With last week’s Intelligence being the last before the end of the school holidays, it remained quite a quiet week for the trade of recyclable materials.

Only key paper grades changed last week, with both plastics and metals stable.


One exception was steel cans, which lost £10 per tonne on the week before.

In paper, OCC continued to fall dropping by £3 per tonne, while news & pam and mixed papers both reduced by £2 per tonne. 

Want a free four-week trial of Intelligence? Then email to request it.

Please note, we do not give a free trial to anyone who has had one in the past year, or who has a generic email address such as Hotmail, yahoo or gmail. We reserve the right to refuse a free trial and our decision is final. 

A special LARAC Intelligence report is provided every Friday free of charge to local authority LARAC members and is available to download on the LARAC website or can be emailed each week on request.
