Prices soar in the cardboard and paper export market

14th Mar 2016

News from mrw magazine this week; prices in the cardboard and paper export markets have risen significantly this year.

In terms of cardboard, prices have been calm at around the £80 per tonne mark since the summer of 2015, however they have now increased in the region of £10 per tonne.

The UK's paper export figure reached new levels last year at 4.880 million tonnes, which shows this market is stable and flying at present.

With these materials being valued so highly it is a great time to start baling your waste cardboard and paper. These bales are attractive propositions for recyclers and they will pay good rebates for your waste. If you are currently throwing your cardboard and paper in a bin or skip you are paying for them to be lifted and you are getting nothing back in return. We will even set your business up with a local recycler so you don't have to do any of this yourself.

Shrink wrap (P.E) continues to be stable with most companies that bale, attracting revenues in excess of £150 per tonne.

We have a huge range of machines, which will bale your waste cardboard and card and you can browse these here...
