By Editorial Staff, Resource Recycling

Recycled HIPS and GPPS pellet prices moved higher in February, following January prime PS price trends.

HIPS mixed color pellets sold as high as 74 cents per pound, while GPPS black pellets sold as high as 56 cents per pound. HIPS and GPPS flake material were up an average of a penny per pound, on a similar dynamic. In the prime polystyrene market, generic HIPS rose 2.5 cents per pound in January and stood at $1.04 per pound at the end of January, but fell in February to end the month at 99.5 cents per pound.
