Markets slow but steady

There was barely any change in UK mill consumption in three out of the four classes of recovered paper in September, according to latest statistics. However, there are no prizes for guessing that the exception was Class III newspapers and magazines, consumption of which soared 29% from 96,139 tonnes in September 2003 to 123,992 tonnes in the same month this year. In the first three-quarters of 2004, consumption of newspapers and magazines leapt 23.5% from 897,875 tonnes to 1,109,000 tonnes.
