OCC keeps on rising in otherwise stable recycling market


The price of OCC is now in unchartered territory after rising by £13 per tonne in a week, according to last week’s Intelligence report.

This means it is now above the record level ever seen during the five years the Intelligence report has been produced.


Mixed paper was also on the rise after staying the same last week, increasing by £5 per tonne.

There was no change seen in plastics or metals grades.
