Can't make it to this date or time?

If you can't make it on this date or time, we would love you to organise a clean up somewhere near your own site.  Contact us for help to organise, and for H&S information. And remember to tell us you are doing it, and how much rubbish you collect. 

What is Operation Clean Sweep?

Operation Clean Sweep® is an international program designed to prevent resin pellet, flake, and powder loss and help keep this material out of the marine environment.

Every segment of the plastics industry has a role to play—including resin producers, transporters, recyclers and plastics processors—by implementing good housekeeping and pellet, flake, and powder containment practices.
