News & pam and copper price rises, but OCC eases back


This week’s Intelligence report saw price rises for news & pam in the paper market and copper in the metals sector.

News & pam increased by £8 per tonne on the back of increasing demand, but the same could not be said of OCC which fell back by £3 per tonne. Mixed paper was unchanged.


Copper increased by £100 per tonne, while all other metal grades remained the same.

Plastic grades were also unchanged.
