Recycled Plastics Composite Index

The Recycled Plastics Composite Index tracks the changing market prices in the scrap and secondary plastics industry . The Index consists of a weighted basket of specific benchmark grades of recovered and secondary plastic. The benchmarks include specific grades of PET, HDPE, LDPE, PVC, PP, PS, PC and ABS. The Index includes snapshots of 5 viewpoints of market trends : the past 7 days, past 30 days, past 90 days, past 1 year and past 2 years.

The Composite Index is updated daily before noon EST and tracks 7 days per week. Transaction activity on the weekends is typically lighter; it is not uncommon to see no change reflected in the Index during this time period.

The Composite Index is derived from current spot market prices originating from the AL-TO-MATE Plastic Exchange (APE). This source of data is proprietary in nature and may not reflect external markets trends. To keep current with the market trends, you may visit this website or subscribe to the RSS Feed.
