OCC and mixed papers keep rising in recycling market


Paper grades were the only real movers in last week’s recycling market, according to the latest Intelligence report.

While plastics and metals saw no movement, OCC and mixed paper were both up by £2 per tonne.


News & pams however continued to slide and was down by £1 per tonne, making it now cheaper than mixed paper.
