Well, you can define it any way you want, but don't be surprised when people don't know WTF you're talking about.

I ran into a head hunter once, who refered to the Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Illinois areas as the mid-east, vs the mid-west Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
Makes logical sense.

FWIW, I couldn't have exactly named the states of the "Midwest". But that little map at wikipedia does help ... And I didn't know it was an official region in the US census.

It is an old description of a region in the US. While it does not necessarily reflect what you would assume not knowing the history of the US it is similar to the region known as the Deep South, which is way north of several areas in the US. Then there is the South West, which is north west of half of Texas, The South which includes states that we in Texas consider the North. ;~)

Google USA MAP.
But yes, I suppose you are right. That would properly be mid north?

Find a manufacturer who makes what you want (Google for 'HDPE plastic lumber') and once you locate one or two ask THEM who sells it within your area. This is far easier than going from the other direction. Sales people are usually eager to tell you where to buy their products and I've even known them go arrange free samples if I acted nice - I've scored free 'Lyptus' lumber, loads of hardware, paint, finishes, glue, tools, and other goodies after talking to sales critters.

HD sells Azek here now, but it's PVC. What's "Midwest"? What -are- you after? You stated HDPE, so you are probably thinking about a brand. What brand? Have you called the mfgr? Do you want virgin vinyl, PVC, composite, or what? What does your lumberyard man who carries the decking say about it?
If you want sane answers, tell us what you searched for and why. I searched for HDPE lumber and found dimensional lumber for decking. MAXiTUF. Ask Resco. http://rescoplastics.com/maxituf-engineering-specs

I hope you have a large balance credit card.
I seem to recall a 4x8 sheet at around $400.
