The Paper Stock Report Recovered Paper Market Survey

This will only take a minute. Thank you in advance for your input.

“The second question I have is just whether in a good market like this you have an opportunity to move away from the dependence on the Pulp & Paper Week pricing in both corrugated and consumer. I think it strikes a lot of us as kind of strange that we’ve got a $50 billion industry that’s being arbitrated by trade paper editors.” – Mark Wilde, BMO Capital, addressing WestRock CEO Steve Vorhees, during the company’s earnings call, April 27, 2018.

Since 1990, The Paper Stock Report has been dedicated to reporting on the market, not dictating it. Your input helps us to continue to report actual prices and bring some semblance of transparency to the paper recycling market.

The Paper Stock Report publishes current North American recovered paper prices, loose and baled, twice a month. Current prices are derived from a combination of the anonymous survey below, in addition to daily phone and email communications with buyers and sellers. You can help us report accurate prices by taking this fast survey. All responses, whether you identify yourself or not, are kept anonymous.

For each grade category, please provide a single price, or a range, that reflect what you are paying or receiving. 

IDEALLY we would like to know the true value of spot tonnage or tonnage that is not bound to RISI contract prices, but all information is valuable and appreciated. This survey considers tonnage sold under contract AND tonnage sold exclusive of contracts. There is plenty of room to elaborate or provide a comment about the market if you choose. You may leave some boxes blank.

Prices are $/ton FOB seller’s dock, baled to current ISRI/PSI specifications, unless otherwise indicated. If you sell to domestic mills on a delivered basis, please indicate that in your answer.
