Maximizing Value in Uncertain Markets

This spring, COVID-19 drove the cardboard (OCC) market up initially, due to production shut downs overseas and domestically. As production has come back online, both here and abroad, the domestic  market softened substantially, reducing rebate values back to previous levels. With China’s National Sword Policy reducing available export outlets, effective training on source separation and contamination, as well as warehouse collection system optimization is increasingly vital to maximizing value return for sustainability programs.
