Prices of recycled materials stay stable but traders now concerned about November market


Last week’s Intelligence report saw little change in the value of secondary commodities.

Prices for recycled plastics were unchanged, while in paper mixed softened slightly.


Copper grades were also little changed, but some price falls were seen for aluminium and ferrous metals.

The market is now looking at November to see whether changing conditions will bring further falls, or whether conditions might see some prices rising.
