According to Brian Taylor’s article from February 14th of this year, he had this to say from the Paper Recycling Conference in India (reviewing Bill Moore’s speech “he says even he was surprised at the turn of events in late 2016 and early 2017.

Moore, speaking to delegates at the 2017 Paper Recycling Conference India, held in Mumbai in February, said prices for old corrugated containers (OCC) and other scrap paper grades in the closing two months of 2016 and January 2017 rose “as high and fast, almost, as I’ve ever seen.”
