The letsrecycle.com guide prices – in £ per tonne – are indicative of prices which may be paid for collection of material by the Domestic Mills (ex-works) or by Exporters or Overseas Mills. We also indicate what a local waste paper merchant might pay or charities receive, usually for smaller loads.

Price indicators are for material ex works, usually baled or supplied to a mill specification. Price guides are compiled by letsrecycle.com and are not guaranteed. We started publishing export prices in 2004. We welcome feedback, email: news@letsrecycle.com. Indicator prices are copyright.
