[GreenYes] Re: recycling markets - source separated v single stream


Title: [GreenYes] Re: recycling markets - source separated v single stream

I am hearing that domestic paper mills are now able to drive down the prices
they pay for fiber and they can now choose among sources for the highest
quality. This means that single stream processors with commingled bales of
fiber are in the weakest position and they're the ones scrambling for
storage facilities because they're having trouble selling their materials.

Clean, sorted fibers have the widest market options. Only a limited subset
of mills can use commingled fibers, so the more processors that produce
that, the more limited their options.
