Metal prices rise and so does OCC, otherwise stable


The main movers in last week’s Intelligence report on recycled materials were metals.

Copper rose by £75 per tonne, and brass was up by £25 per tonne.


However, aluminium grades were mostly unchanged.

In paper, only OCC changed in value increasing by just £1 per tonne.

Plastics prices were unchanged.
