Upcoming plastic feedstock compliance webinars

Together with Operation Clean Sweep, the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) is holding two webinars to introduce best practice guidance in relation to plastic feedstock and pollution incidents. The webinars will outline relevant NSW legislation and offer an update on the Operation Clean Sweep program.

With the aim of achieving several outcomes, Operation Clean Sweep is an industry program that directs attention and solutions to the leakage pathways of plastic feedstock within the plastic manufacturing supply chain.

The NSW Plastics Action Plan, launched by the NSW EPA in 2021, is committed to reducing the amount of plastic feedstock that enters the environment. The Plan aims to manage plastic generation throughout its lifecycle, including reducing plastic waste.

The NSW EPA has published comprehensive guidance aligning legislation with the NSW Plastics Action Plan. This guidance provides information relating to plastic feedstock handling and loss, and will help relevant industry members to enhance their operational practices to combat the ongoing and significant consequences of plastic pollution on marine ecosystems, water quality and human health.

Each webinar will cover:

  • the risks when plastic feedstock escapes into the environment and who is responsible;
  • NSW Plastics Action Plan targets;
  • how plastic feedstock loss connects to environment protection legislation;
  • how Operation Clean Sweep targets plastic feedstock loss from plastic transportation, manufacturing and recycling.
