Operation Cleansweep booklet


'BPF requests firms involved in the handling of plastics materials to seriously consider, if they are not already doing so, adopting the principles of Operation Clean Sweep, in order to minimise the opportunities for pellet loss'.

The BPF have launched 'Operation Clean Sweep: Plastic Pellet Loss prevention', a manual on best practice in ensuring zero pellet loss into the environment.

The Operation Clean Sweep (OCS) programme and manual contains guidelines to help plastics industry operations managers reduce the loss of pellets to the environment.
