August Market Snippet

15 Aug 2016

This month we saw continued improvements in the recovered paper grades as demand again outpaced supply. 

Cardboard led the way domestically, and on the export market.  Mixed and office papers followed cardboard’s lead. 

There is some industry speculation about a softening/correction in September as supply increases; but for August we moved forward.  Plastics softened a little on some of the common grades and the ferrous metals were steady.  Overall a positive month.

I hope you are all able to enjoy the sunshine this month!
