NSW EPA - Plastic Feedstock Compliance Webinar

The NSW EPA and Operation Clean Sweep are offering two webinars to introduce best practice guidance, outline NSW legislation, and update on the Operation Clean Sweep program in regard to plastic feedstock and pollution incidents.

The webinars 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 enviornment protection legislation.
  • How Operation Clean Sweep, targets plastic feedstock loss from plastic transportation, manufacturing, and recycling.

In 2021 the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) launched the NSW Plastics Action Plan. A commitment was made to reduce plastic feedstock from entering the environment. The project aims at managing plastic generation throughout its lifecycle, including reducing plastic waste. With a focus on 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 EPA 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, the impact on water quality, and human health.

To register, please see the links below - both workshops will cover the same content:

Tues July 16th 11.30am - 12.30pm AEST

Wed August 14th 2.30pm - 3.30pm AEST
