Forbes sign up to Operation Clean Sweep
14/02/2017

Forbes have recently signed up to Operation Clean Sweep and have committed to ensuring that there are zero plastic pellets, flakes and powders lost from their facility to the environment.

“We have always taken our responsibility for the Environment very seriously. Operation Clean Sweep has helped to focus our attention on engaging all our staff in pellet containment and also in reviewing current practice. We are proud to show the industries commitment to this programme”.

Operation Clean Sweep is an international programme and is run in the UK by the British Plastics Federation (BPF). The programme is designed to provide best practice through its manual on how to contain plastic pellets, flakes and powders. The manual provides information on conducting site audits, setting up training programmes, worksite setup and procedures to contain and clean up pellets.

Helen Jordan, the Sustainability Issues Executive at the BPF says “The plastic industry is committed to reducing plastic pellet losses to the Environment and Operation Clean Sweep provides the practical tools companies need to do this. Many of the industry already have Environmental Management Systems in place but Operation Clean Sweep provides an additional emphasis for the company on plastic pellet containment”.

We encourage other companies to pledge their support for Operation Clean Sweep at www.operationcleansweep.co.uk
