Resources for
Recycling Market Pricing Information

The following sources of information can help in tracking recycling commodity pricing. Keep in mind that pricing information tends to be general and may not apply directly to your specific area or status in the supply chain. Still, these sources can give you good estimates of general price trends for various commodities.

Recycling Works newsletter

On the last page of each edition, Recycling Works includes price reports from three MRFs in North Carolina for traditional recyclable materials. The prices posted represent the price that the MRFs are receiving from mills and secondary processors they supply.


Official Board Markets “Yellow Sheet”

This source tracks mill and export pricing for different paper grades. A subscription is required, but this source is the industry standard and is often referenced in price setting between suppliers, processors and mills. For example, a processor may offer a collector “Yellow Sheet - $20/ton” for cardboard.


Kitco
