PRN Prices

We have a page on the website showing Quarterly prices and general price history for PRNs. In the newsletter, we will therefore just give any price swings that have occurred over the past week.
These should be taken as a guide only as prices may vary due to volume purchased, month of purchase etc. But they will not be far out. Figures shown are £/tonne.
Prices are still pretty stable but steel has moved up significantly and has now reached £120/tonne on some largish trading.

Material Current price Change on last week
Paper 3-5 0
Glass 22-26 0
Aluminium 60-65 -5
Steel 110-120 +10
Plastic 14-18 -1
Wood 4-6 0
Net recycling 3-6 0
Net recovery 2-4 0

360 Services

For many companies registered under the Packaging Waste and WEEE Regulations, this has been an expensive year. 360 can help you understand whether what you are paying is representative and reasonable. If you are considering your Packaging registration options for 2010, you will need to give notice to your existing scheme by the end of September. 360 can provide independent market advice on the most cost effective route to compliance. We can also provide a full compliance management service including the gathering of data and registration for 2010.

A toy company has released a cuddly version of the swine flu virus. The 7" H1N1, available for $7.95, is pink, fluffy and has a nose and eyes.
It's described as a 'great learning tool' by Giantmicrobes (look at the best sellers!), which already sells huggable versions of bed bugs, MRSA and ebola.

The mayors of two Paris suburbs have declared the same road one-way - but in different directions. Patrick Balkarny, the conservative head of Levallois-Perret, first made the D909 one-way to cut commuter traffic passing through the area. But Gilles Catoire, Socialist mayor of neighbouring Clichy-la-Garenne, complained this increased congestionin his area and he declared his part of the road one-way in the opposite direction.
Police were called to sort out the chaos as motorists tried to obey the contradictory signs. The local prefect has now ruled in favour of Mayor Balkany's favour.
