SUBJECT:

CTRA Monthly Price Sheet –

Below is the CTRA Price Sheet for January, 2012. I did not send out a price sheet last month and maybe that was because of the depressing low numbers. As you can see, everything is up from last month and while we are not at our summer numbers yet‌we are on the rise! The prices are showing to be lower than this time last year (as seen in the far right-hand column). This might indicate overall lower prices this year than last year. Keep up the great work and remember every pound you recycle you save landfill and transporting costs too! Thanks for all you do for the Panhandle! -Elizabeth COMMODITIES Steel Cans UBC (Aluminum Cans) PET HDPE Natural HDPE Colored HDPE & PET OCC (Corrugated) Deink (#8 News) Mixed Paper ONP (#6 News) SOW (High Grade Office) White Ledger CPO Computer Paper
