MINIMIZING PLASTIC WASTE, PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT
PSC Group is a partner in the Plastics Industry Association’s Operation Clean Sweep® (OCS), an international initiative designed to prevent resin pellet, flake, and powder loss, and keep plastics out of the environment. OCS promotes and standardizes a set of voluntary best practices to reduce waste and promote the circular economy in the plastics industry.
We’re proud to be the top provider of Operation Clean Sweep compliance for the major petrochemical plants in North America, helping our clients transition to more sustainable, environmentally friendly practices.

Why join Operation Clean Sweep?
Eliminating plastic pollution caused by plastic resin loss is critical to sustainability and environmental protection. Spilled plastic resin or pellets and plastic scrap can be carried into rivers, lakes, and oceans, causing harm to ecosystems and wildlife.
In fact, plastic pellets are estimated to be the second-largest direct source of microplastic pollution to the ocean. An estimated ten trillion plastic pellets are swept into waterways every year, where they are often ingested by animals, threatening their health and their lives.
We can help. When PSC Group operates a comprehensive Operation Clean Sweep program at your plant, you can be sure that the plastic resin in your facility is properly harvested. Even scrap quality increases improve your revenue from recycling and resale.
Meeting Operation Clean Sweep standards
PSC Group conducts site audits and prepares customized sustainability plans to help you achieve Operation Clean Sweep compliance. We offer a variety of clean sweep services and operations, including vacuum truck services and industrial scrap recycling, allowing you to achieve better sustainability results with less effort and personnel.
We also support customers in achieving OCS Blue status, a VIP membership that recognizes companies for excelling above and beyond the general OCS standards.
