Litter Hotspots: Operation Clean Sweep

Tangaroa Blue Foundation

Tangaroa Blue Foundation's Operation Clean Sweep was an industry engagement program focused on reducing plastic resin pellet pollution in Port Phillip Bay. Tangaroa Blue worked with the plastics industry, bayside councils Kingston and Wyndham, the Western Region Environment Centre and Werribee River Association to pilot an industry engagement program.

Key achievements from this project included:

  • a successful implementation of Operation Clean Sweep in Australia
  • a number of plastics manufacturing companies implementing the Operation Clean Sweep program 
  • data and mapping of plastic resin pollution across metropolitan Melbourne.
