By joining Operation Clean Sweep, the Members of the CIAC Plastics Division have committed to zero plastic resin loss. The OCS Program Manual has been developed to provide your company with a step-by-step guide on implementing OCS into your day-to-day operations.
Operation Clean Sweep will help strengthen your company’s:
The OCS Program prioritizes prevention by identifying common high-risk areas, and providing best practices used within the industry to minimize risk. A prevention-based approach yields environmental, social and economic benefits: preventing spills and loss prevents harm to waterway ecosystems and wildlife, reduces safety hazards for staff, enhances the industry’s social license to operate, and maximizes the retention of valuable plastic materials.
Improperly managed plastic resin can significantly harm the surrounding communities and environment and companies can demonstrate accountability and leadership in their communities by minimizing the loss of resin.
The goal of OCS, working towards zero resin loss, is an on-going, daily commitment. The OCS Program relies on companies to share issues and solutions with the CIAC Plastics Division and the industry. Your company’s success in achieving zero resin loss is the industry’s success.
