OCC Waste Paper

OCC Waste Paper is a commonly used waste Paper Globally as a result, its very important for recreational purposes.

We load bales as per customers preferred loading and packing methods, therefor we can load up to 22/23 tons in 40 Feet Container – 36 bales in each Container.

A lot of recovered fiber grades have declined over the years. ONP (old newspapers), printing and writing grades, high grades, etc. [However,] OCC Waste Paper(old corrugated containers) are increasing.

Paper mills are using a higher percentage of recovered fiber as their feed stock hence supply good grades of paper and paper related products.

Also, they are getting more diligent about what type of OCC Waste Paper to buy—nondomestic OCC, grocery OCC, postindustrial OCC, etc. And many suggest it is time to revisit [the specification] and have several grades of OCC waste Paper.

This is the current specification. “(11) Old Corrugated Containers (OCC) – Consists of corrugated containers having liners of either test liner or kraft.

Prohibitive materials may not exceed 1 percent. Outthrows plus prohibitives may not exceed 5 percent.”

About two-thirds of what we buy and sell as an industry is OCC, and we have about 15 words to describe two-thirds of what we buy and sell.

There are about 3,000 words for everything else, many of which have since become irrelevant.



Getting more specific of OCC Waste Paper


With nearly 30 million tons of OCC collected, bought, sold and consumed in the U.S. per year, we as industry leaders had better define a specification.

As an operator of MRFs (material recovery facilities) and a buyer of material that goes into our mills, these are the things we look at when considering pricing.

  • long fiber content;
  • domestic OCC content;
  • truckload volume;
  • bale weights;
  • volume buying (The higher the volume the higher the price.);
  • short fiber content;
  • nondomestic OCC content;
  • OCC from residential curbside content (OCC that comes from residential collection typically is dirtier than OCC that comes out of a distribution center or a grocery store.);
  • moisture content;
  • contaminants; and
  • outthrows.

Some members within PSI (Paper Stock Industries chapter of ISRI) would argue that enough variability exists among the various sources of OCC as a result of this. It’s time to have multiple specifications.

Taking a closer look


In North America in 2013, close to 50 million tons of recycled fiber were collected. It is about a 60:40 split in terms of U.S. versus export consumption: 29.9 million tons went to domestic mills, and 19.4 million tons went to export mills.

We could offer Monthly bulk Quantities of Paper both scrap in bales and non scrap as below.

If we look at that 30 million tons of recovered fiber consumed domestically, Sixty-six percent of it is OCC; 34 percent is everything else combined.

Two-thirds is one grade—OCC— hence there are only about 15 words that explain the spec for OCC.
