Operation Clean Sweep – UK Program


Operation Clean Sweep has been operational in the UK for some time and already a large number of companies have signed the “Pledge to Prevent Resin Pellet Loss” to become an Operation Clean Sweep partner. The BPF has also published a manual entitled “Operation Clean Sweep: Plastic Pellet Loss prevention” that contains guidelines to help plastics industry operations managers reduce the loss of pellets to the environment. The manual is available from the Operation Clean Sweep website. The BPF hopes to get the commitment of every company, from top management to shop floor employees, to use the manual for the prevention, containment and clean-up of plastic materials to ensure no escape to the environment.
