Operation Clean Sweep Street Sweeper

Three trucks are parked outside of a white building - the trucks have the Sunrise logo on their door and read "Operation Clean Sweep" on their body

Sunrise is pleased to announce that as of 2024, 10 of our petrochemical plant routes are routinely serviced by an Operation Clean Sweep Street Sweeper. 

Operation Clean Sweep (OCS) is an international program designed to prevent resin pellet, flake, and powder loss. It helps keep pellets, flakes, and powder out of the marine environment. OCS’s best practices and management resources specifically support companies as they equip their facilities and establish protocols to prevent resin loss.

The OCS sweeper is a traveling piece of equipment. It’s scheduled to drive through customers’ facilities at regular intervals, servicing common areas in and around the facility.

Operation Clean Sweep Blue Verification

The OCS sweeper is just one resource employed to ensure Sunrise’s plants adhere to the tenets of OCS.

“OCS is about stewardship and taking care of the environment,” said Chris Magnus, President of Sunrise Plastics/Sunrise Services. “When employees see the truck on-site, it reaffirms that Sunrise as a whole cares about the best practices set forth by OCS.”

Sunrise, which has received an OCS Blue Verification, is proud to continue working with OSC and incorporate these weekly sweeper visits into our processes.

OCS Blue Verification is received after external inspections verify that over 25 requirements have been successfully implemented at the facility level. To maintain this qualification, Sunrise will provide data quarterly to prove that we continue to meet OSC’s rigorous standards. Read more to learn about OCS Blue Verification and the OCS mission.
