OCC eases back, LDPE rises slightly in otherwise stable market


The market for secondary materials is quiet at the moment with many traders on holiday.

But the recent hot run for paper grades halted a little last week, as some buyers started to take a step back.


OCC fell by a pound on the back of this slightly weaker demand, while mixed fell back by £4.

Plastic grades were stable with the exception of LDPE 98/2, which increased by £5 on the back of slightly improving demand.

Metal grades were largely stable, although copper grades dropped by £25 per tonne.
