Scrap paper markets
Most mills are reportedly jammed with old corrugated (OCC), but mills going through financial problems are paying premiums to get hesitant suppliers to send tonnage their way. Despite almost daily announcements of newspaper closings and bankruptcies, prices for old newspaper (ONP) remain stronger than expected. Look for upcoming export problems - containers and/or ship space is getting hard to come by. See The Paper Stock Report www.recycle.cc/freepapr.htm.
