Operation Clean Sweep

Dedicated to eliminating plastic pollution from the world’s waterways

Plastic products have changed the world and we rely on them every day to deliver significant social, environmental and economic benefits, including energy and resource savings, consumer protection and innovations that improve health care, reduce food spoilage and improve quality of life.

Plastics in the Environment

Pellets, flakes, and powder loss are issues the plastics sector hold as its top priority. Because plastics are so prevalent in our lives, it’s the responsibility of industry and individuals to use and dispose of plastic pollution properly. While plastics don’t belong in the environment, plastic pollution has become part of the larger overall problem of litter in our oceans and waterways.

Operation Clean Sweep (OCS) is an international program designed to achieve zero pellet, flake and powder loss and the potential introduction of pellets to the marine environment where they create both a litter problem and a threat to sea life and wild life. The goal of OCS is to help each segment of our industry including resin producers, transporters, bulk terminal operators and plastics processors take the steps necessary to improve containment practices towards achieving zero pellet, flake and power loss.

OCS Pledge: Our Commitment to Eliminating Plastic Pollution from the Environment

Partner companies of the OCS program make a pledge which shows their commitment to the environment and gives you access to resources and support from the OCS team to help implement the standards set by the program.

Other supporters are organizations (for-profit or non-profit companies; incorporated trade associations; and unincorporated coalitions) that may not qualify for partnership (i.e., do not manufacture or handle resin pellets) but support the efforts of OCS to prevent plastic pollution in the environment. Supporters play a crucial part in helping to spread the word about responsible plastic production and plastic pollution management. We encourage you to read the pledge and sign if you support the OCS program.
