Operation Clean Sweep to catch on in Canada

April 06/2012

(canplastics) -- In the past nine months, several dozen Canadian plastics processing companies have signed onto Operation Clean Sweep (OCS), a U.S.-developed series of rules for pellet containment. 

Introduced in Canada in July 2011, OCS is one of the initiatives of the North American Plastics Alliance (NAPA), an organization comprised of the Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA), SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Association (SPI), and the Plastics Division of the American Chemistry Council (ACC).

SPI launched OCS in 1992 and now partners with ACC and CPIA to help every plastic resin handling operation implement what the Toronto-based CPIA describes as good housekeeping and pellet containment practices that result in zero pellet loss as well as keep the environment clean and save resources. All registrants at the NPE2012 trade show in Orlando, Fla., are getting an OCS pledge form, and the three organizations are working together to promote participation throughout the NPE trade show.

Pellet containment efforts have increased six fold with new Canadian manufacturers participating in the program, the CPIA said. The three organizations are also holding joint webinars to promote the program throughout North America.
