OCC and mixed paper prices still rising, HDPE bottles up too, copper eases back


Last week’s Intelligence report showed paper prices rising for key grades still.

After slumping from recent highs a few weeks back, OCC and mixed are getting close once again to those highs.


OCC was up last week by £9 per tonne while mixed paper increased by £6 per tonne.

HDPE bottles also saw a rise, increasing by £10 per tonne.

In metals, only copper grades changed, falling back by £50 per tonne.
