E-scrap Pricing

We had a contract for the collection and recycling of residential electronics, specifically computers, monitors, televisions and some miscellaneous items, such as cell phones, game boards, radios, etc. The contract just came up for renewal but the contractor can't hold the pricing initially proposed because the market has nose-dived. I'm in search of an index or market that we could tie the pricing to as we go back out with a new RFP. Any recommendations? I can't seem to find anything specific for e-scrap and based on my research, it looks like it really can't be tied to just the metal because they seem to recycle the parts separately, such as the boards, chips, and hard drives.

Thanks!
