Reducing Plastic Pellet Loss to the Environment

Operation Clean Sweep® is an international initiative from the plastics industry to reduce plastic pellet loss to the environment.

The initiative’s aim is to ensure that the plastic pellets, flakes and powders that pass through manufacturing facilities are handled with care and do not end up in our rivers or seas.

By signing up to Operation Clean Sweep®, companies make a commitment to adhere to best practice, implement systems to prevent plastic pellet loss, and that they will play their part in protecting the marine environment. 

Signing up to Operation Clean Sweep® is a simple process, and a variety of resources are provided containing key information. 

Once my company signs up, what do we do?

Once signed up to Operation Clean Sweep®, checklists are available for both management and employees, as well as the OCS Manual that can be used internally to educate staff about how to contain pellets and clean up spills quickly. 

The Operation Clean Sweep® Plastic Pellet Loss Prevention Manual contains best practice for the whole of the plastics industry about how to prevent, contain and clean up plastic pellet spills.
