Mill demand for recovered paper remains high


Demand is outpacing supply of recovered paper in the June buying period, and some anticipate this trend will continue throughout the summer.

Recyclers across the U.S. have noticed an uptick in demand for recovered paper.  

“Everyone is begging for more cardboard and mixed paper,” says a material recovery facility (MRF) operator based in the South. “It seems like mill inventories are low, and they are crying that they need this material. It’s why we saw an increase in prices month over month.”
