core tip: at 6:30 in the morning, Lao Ba, who lives in Hongmiao village, Huaiyin District, Jinan City, Shandong Province, rode out on the flat car he used to collect waste products. Waste paper is his main recycled goods at present. Two months ago, 7:30 was the time for him to go out. "Now you have to leave early. If you go late, you won't receive anything." The reason why we can't receive it is that the price of waste paper continues to rise. "In 2017, the lowest price was only more than 3 cents a kilogram, and now it has risen to more than 6 cents. Many people are staring!"
[China Packaging News] at 6:30 in the morning, Lao Qi, who lives in Hongmiao village, Huaiyin District, Jinan City, Shandong Province, rode out on his flat car used to collect waste products. Waste paper is his main recycled goods at present. Two months ago, 7:30 was the time for him to go out. "Now you have to leave early. If you go late, you won't receive anything." The reason why we can't receive it is that the price of waste paper continues to rise. "In 2017, the lowest price was only more than 3 cents a kilogram, and now it has risen to more than 6 cents. Many people are staring!"
the waste paper recycled by the old relatives is sold to the waste recycling station, and the waste purchase station is sold to the paper mill and carton factory, and finally becomes the packaging of all kinds of products around. From the upstream to the downstream, the price rise tide like a greedy snake hit vigorously
the recycling price rose to the selling price
less than eight o'clock, Lao Qi went to the west market commodity wholesale market along the way, which is his main recycling position. "I opened the door at 8:00 in the morning. I had to go in for a turn as soon as I opened the door. In the past, I had time to go in at 8:30. Now I'm late. The first wave of cartons had been collected long ago."
in just a few months, waste cartons have become the "sweet pastry" of waste goods. "I used to want drink bottles and cans, but now those can't sell at a good price, only waste paper is rising." Lao Qi told that in 2017, when the recycling price of waste paper was at its lowest, it was only more than 3 cents, and now it has risen to 6 cents. "Now the recycling price is higher than the selling price, such as GE. Everyone is rushing to recycle waste paper because they make money."
in less than half an hour after entering the western market, Lao Ba had received a thick stack of waste cartons. Lao Ba dragged these waste cartons to a small road east of the west market, where he parked his flatbed car and his "temporary storage of materials". After being neatly flattened, piled high and bundled firmly by the roadside, Lao Ba piled the bundle of waste cartons to the corner of the wall first, and then covered it with a waterproof cloth. "It's a waste of time to put it on the car and pile it untidy. We have to hurry back and collect it."
"you can only collect a few hundred kilograms a day, that is, the amount of a car." Lao Ba told him that one car a day was the limit of his recycling, mainly because of the large number of people. Secondly, the recycling station was far away from Wujiabao or the north of the Yellow River, and it was too late. "Now the recycling station also likes waste paper. If you pull a cart of bottles and cans, you will lose your face. Now waste paper is valuable, but no one can guess what the next rainy cloud is, and when the price of paper can rise?"
when Lao BA was confused about this problem, Sheng Qingfa was also worried about this problem in Yantai Zhaoyuan, hundreds of kilometers away from Lao ba. "When will such a rising method end?!"
Sheng Qingfa is the boss of a food production enterprise. His products are mainly packed in cartons. Now the price of cartons has risen so high that he can't stand it. He calculated that 400 cartons were used in the factory every day, and the paper used in each carton was about 1.5 square meters. At this time last year, the price of cartons per square meter was 2.6 yuan, and now it has risen to 4.2 yuan. Calculated, the cost of cartons alone has increased by nearly 1000 yuan every day. "Before you call me, I just received the price adjustment notice from the carton factory, and the price will rise from 4.2 yuan to 5.2 yuan immediately, which directly increases by 1 yuan." Inside is a combination of dsp+mcu. Sheng Qingfa told, "after listening to the quotation, I directly dropped the landline microphone."
as a supplier of shengqingfa, Zhao Guangsheng, who runs the carton factory, did not feel good although his price rose. "There is no way to raise prices. If I don't raise prices, I'll close the door." Zhao Guangsheng said with a wry smile, "at the end of last year, the price of a ton of cardboard was 2600 yuan. On August 5 this year, it was 3200 yuan. Now it is 5700 yuan. Do you think I can not raise the price?"
it is understood that Zhao Guangsheng's main supplier is the country's largest box board base paper product, and plastic has been more and more widely used in the medical field, such as Jiulong paper, Yantai Dazhan paper, Shouguang Luli paper and other local box board suppliers. At present, the supply prices of these companies are rising, and they are rising by fivehundred per ton. "Now it's not just a price increase, but also can't get the goods. After paying the money, you can only wait in line. If you can receive the goods in more than a week, it's fast, and you can arrive the next day before, and you don't need a handful of money."
various reasons have contributed to the soaring price of paper
the distress of Sheng Qingfa and Zhao Guangsheng may not be felt by ordinary people, but many people have experienced the price change of terminal household paper. In the process of following Lao Qi to "sweep the streets" in the west market, a staff member of a shop selling office supplies told him that the price of office paper was also rising, "like ordinary A4 printing paper, the price of 500 pieces of paper in a package increased by more than two yuan, and the price of a box increased by more than 20 yuan. Moreover, he asked the manufacturer for goods, and only sent me more than 20 boxes a month. Even the price of napkins in each package increased by more than two yuan."
why is the price of paper so soaring? The reason is that the rise in paper prices is inseparable from the high price of raw materials. Previously, Zhao Wei, chairman of China Paper Association, said publicly that first, the supply of commodity pulp is tight; Second, as China has strengthened the management of imported waste paper, one of the main raw materials of papermaking, the import volume has decreased and the price has risen sharply. It is understood that the general office of the State Council recently issued the "implementation plan for the reform of the management system of prohibiting the entry of foreign garbage and promoting solid waste so as to ensure the qualified waste import of materials". It is proposed that the import of unsorted waste paper and other solid waste will be prohibited by the end of 2017
in addition to the rise in the price of raw materials, a number of small and medium-sized paper mills have been shut down or integrated to change production due to reasons such as non-compliance with environmental protection, which has led to a low operating rate of the paper mills, a reduction in inventory and a decline in supply, which are also the reasons for the rise in paper prices. "And it is said that many large households in the upstream are hoarding paper and speculation, which also drives up prices.". In the interview, Zhao Guangsheng told, "if this situation continues, it is estimated that the rise will not stop for a while and a half."
