Operation Clean Sweep: Plastics and the Environment

The first Operation Clean Sweep® seminar took place in February, with two of our team in attendance. Andy (SHEQ Manager) and Thomas (Shop Floor Manager) learned the results from the Operation Clean Sweep survey. It looked at 64 companies and the actions that were taken to prevent plastic pellets from escaping, from spill kits to mesh drain covers and staff training.

Led in the UK by BPF, Operation Clean Sweep is an international initiative from the plastics industry to reduce plastic pellet loss to the environment.
