Markets Update

May 2013

Municipal Waste Association


The good the bad and the ugly

The good, the bad, and the ugly

Marketing TrendsGreen fencing


Occ old corrugated cardboard

ONPOld Newspaper

THE GOOD

OCC remains strong.

Market is in balance from a supply and demand point

Fluctuations in pricing will be minimal

THE BAD

ONP #8 pricing is slipping

MRFs are slowing down the lines and adding staff to make grade

Cost of future processing contracts may increase

THE UGLY

Mixed fibre grade is slowly disappearing

Inspections results Chinese ports are ranging from delays to rejections carrying tens of thousands of dollars in fees

OCC Old Corrugated Cardboard


Pet polyethylene terephalate

THE GOOD

The debate on thermoform clamshells seems to have subsided. Virtually all processors are accepting them in their feedstock

THE BAD

Pricing continues to fall as China is slow to come back into the PET market

THE UGLY

More and more PET containers are being sold with a plastic sleeve making it difficult for optical sorters to identify materials.

Increases costs at the MRF and down streams

PET Polyethylene terephalate


THE GOOD

Demand remains constant and supply is low, pricing remains positive

THE BAD AND THE UGLY…. They can take a break on this one.

HDPE High Density Polyethylene


Mixed plastics tubs lids

THE GOOD

Ontario has a strong established presence for the processing of mixed plastics

No municipality should be void of an option to divert mixed plastics

THE BAD

With China currently not buying #3-#7, US supply is looking to market into the Ontario processors, now more than ever it is important to cultivate long term relationships with processors.

THE UGLY

Some MRFs have been “Cherry Picking” the higher value polyolefin from the stream, puts into jeopardy the mixed rigid program

Tubs and lids pricing still around $200mt however lower costs for virgin material may result in lower pricing

Mixed Plastics Tubs & Lids


Metals steel aluminum

THE GOOD

No shortage of buyers for metals, everyone loves metal

THE BAD

Pricing continues to soften, steel price down again for May and June

THE UGLY

Markets for prime grade aluminum are very restrictive and quality standards are being adhered

Downgrades and rejections have become common

Metals Steel & aluminum


Glass

THE GOOD

Contrary to popular belief there is a home for glass in Ontario, clear, coloured and mixed broken glass .

THE BAD

The quality of MBG in Ontario has deteriorated and is causing stress on the market processors

THE UGLY

The cost to MRFs to improve glass clean up systems is not insignificant. Will this have an impact on Blue Box best practices and funding? Is there CIF funding available

Glass


Plastic film styrofoam

THE GOOD…. AS IT GETS

EPS has some homes, it will continue to be an expensive commodity to handle

THE BAD AND UGLY

With China out on film, MRF grade film is on the verge of being crippled as a commodity

Hope may be on the horizon with facilities such as the EFS plant in Listowel handling this film grade.

Plastic Film & Styrofoam
