Price of OCC and LDPE 98/2 fell last week


In last week’s Intelligence report, prices were largely stable.

However, OCC eased back by £1 per tonne after weeks of price rises. Other paper grades were stable.


In plastics, the main mover was LDPE 98/2, which dropped by £20 per tonne.

Otherwise, the market was largely unchanged.
