Shipping price change may impact on prices next week


A change to shipping prices proposed by two major shipping lines may make recyclate prices change next week.

Paper is likely to be affected most by the charges proposed by the shipping lines, but there will also be an impact on plastics and metals.


Already this week, the price of PET has changed by £4 per tonne, while LDPE has changed by £10 per tonne.

Although metals and paper are relatively stable, there has been some small changes this week, with more potentially on the horizon.
