On behalf of Operation Clean Sweep, we are pleased to invite industry members to participate in two Great Nurdle Hunt events that will take place in Sydney and Melbourne in October.
In Sydney, the Great Nurdle Hunt on Monday 16 October will be hosted by Tangaroa Blue Foundation and NSW Environment Protection Authority (NSW EPA). The Nurdle Hunt will be held at Plane Spotters Beach in Botany and will run from 1pm-3pm. The agenda will include guest speakers, a Nurdle Hunt and clean-up, and a networking opportunity.
In Melbourne, the Great Nurdle Hunt will be held on Wednesday 18 October at Westgate Park in Port Melbourne. The event will run from 11am-1pm and include guest speakers, a Nurdle Hunt and clean-up, and a networking opportunity.
Past events saw a great turnout from industry members, Chemistry Australia, the EPA and community partners, and we hope to have an even bigger turnout in 2023.
The events aim to help identify sources of plastic resin pellet loss, as well as opportunities for the industry to work collaboratively through their supply chains to reduce the loss of plastic resin pellets into the environment.
We look forward to seeing you in Sydney or Melbourne and encourage you to also invite other industry members to join the event.
