Recycled markets see some prices edge down


Although the market for recycled goods was subdued last week, some grades did edge down.

OCC fell by £1 per tonne, and has now fallen by the same amount for the past three weeks. Mixed paper was stable meaning the spread between OCC and it is getting increasingly tighter.


Copper dropped by £25 per tonne, as did brass. Aluminium was stable.

Plastic grades saw no change last week.
