Eliminating plastic pollution caused by plastic resin loss during production or transportation is a critical issue for the environment and the world’s waterways. Spilled plastic resin can make its way into local rivers, lakes, and oceans affecting waterway ecosystems and wildlife. Through Operation Clean Sweep (OCS) our industry is playing a critical role in being part of the solution to this global issue.

OCS is an international prevention-focused program for environmental stewardship designed to help every plastic resin manufacturing and handling operation implement good housekeeping and resin containment practices. Driven by the Principles and Benefits of OCS, CIAC Plastics Division members commit to the responsible management of plastic resin throughout all aspects of their company’s business.
