LOS ANGELES , March 6, 2012 () –

Certain grades of recovered paper in Italy have inched up in February as the market remains tight due to less recyclable paper being collected and more of it being exported, reported EUWID-Paper on March 6.

The volume of recovered paper being collected in Italy declined further between January and February, while more of what was collected is being exported out of the country.

With the market currently in severe undersupply, inventories were low at paper and paperboard mills.

The undersupply caused Italian prices for mixed paper and board, supermarket paper and board and old corrugated containers to increase by about €20 (US$26) per tonne in February, according to suppliers and buyers, EUWID-Paper reported.
