Our next topic centers on the decline in revenues experienced by recycling-related organizations in the last year. John Russell authored a story titled ‘Recycling industry buffeted by falling prices’ in the February 27, 2016 edition of the Indianapolis Business Journal as follows: “With prices tumbling for scrap metal, used paper and old plastic bottles, recycling firms around Indiana are watching revenue drop. Most are working harder to find buyers that will pay a decent price for their materials. Some are idling operations; the downturn is putting pressure on operators to cut costs & could hurt government budgets that used to make money from the sale of recyclables. At J. Solotken & Co., they spend hours a day sorting metals from stamping plants & fabricators. A truckload of sorted scrap metal that would have fetched $120K two years ago is likely to get only $65K. Solotken’s revenue has fallen 25% in the past 2 years. President Joseph M. Alpert says there’s too much supply and not enough demand; we’re not losing money, but we’re not making what we did 2-3 years ago.
Gabriel Metals in Lebanon, with about 17 employees, recently slowed their small recycling operation. CNP Recycling has also been negatively impacted citing severe market conditions. Carey Hamilton, executive director of the Indiana Recycling Coalition, says markets are down, and that has caused some pain for the sector. Around the country, recyclers are feeling plenty of pain in the scrap metal industry. Falling oil prices, a weak economy in China and a drop-off in demand for scrap have pummeled the market for a wide variety of goods. Prices for polyethylene terephthalate, a material in plastic bottles fell 54% in the last year. The full story is available here.
