ReefClean Brings Operation Clean Sweep to the Great Barrier Reef

ReefClean is a 5-year federal government tender being delivered by Tangaroa Blue Foundation to provide marine debris removal and prevention strategies across the Great Barrier Reef.

As part of the prevention strategies, Operation Clean Sweep® has joined ReefClean as a partner to assist in engaging the plastics and logisitics industries in making the pledge for zero plastic resin pellet, flake and powder loss across the Great Barrier Reef catchment.

At the National Plastic Summit, held in Canberra at the beginning of March 2020, Chemistry Australia announced that Operation Clean Sweep® would move to a national focus through the newly formed Plastic Stewardship Australia, highlighting the importance of the program in showcasing best practice in the plastics and logistics industries.

ReefClean is providing the opportunity to expand Operation Clean Sweep® across Queensland, and the interest from local businesses in the five major regional centres aross the Great Barrier Reef catchment has been extremely encouraging.

If your network has ties to the Great Barrier Reef and you are able to make an introduction to the Operation Clean Sweep® team, just send through an email to email/info)(
