Small price rises seen for OCC and some metals in latest Intelligence report


Last week’s Intelligence report showed that there were small price rises seen for OCC and some metals.

The price of OCC rose by £2 per tonne on the back of strong buying from one company as well as benefits from the falling pound.


Otherwise, paper grades were largely stable.

In the metals market, copper was up by £125 per tonne, brass by £100 per tonne and aluminium by £50 per tonne. But these seem to have been driven by temporary demand.

Plastics were stable.
