News & pam recovers, metals also up in Intelligence recycled pricing report


The price of news & pam has now recovered back to where it was before the closure of Aylesford Newsprint.

As shown in the weekly Intelligence recycled pricing report, news & pam has risen by £5 per tonne over the last few weeks, putting it back to where it was prior to the time when the Kent-based newsprint mill closed.


However, over recent months, the price of news & pam has only been a little below that level.

Last week also saw continued demand for mixed papers, pushing up the price by around £2 per tonne.

In metals, copper increased by £25 per tonne, and aluminium was up by the same. While brass scrap increased by £50 per tonne.

Plastics grades were stable.
