Operation Clean Sweep
Zero Pellet Loss is a priority for the plastics industry – and a critical issue for our environment. Spilled pellets make their way into local waters and eventually end up in our oceans where they create both a litter problem and a deadly threat to sea life. The Operation Clean Sweep (OCS) Program was created to help keep the environment clean.
