Engaging community, industry and government to reduce plastic resin pellets flowing into Port Phillip Bay

During July 2018 to June 2020, Tangaroa Blue Foundation staff conducted surveys of plastic resin pellet (PRP) ratings at various points between plastics industry facilities and Port Phillip Bay in Victoria as part of the Operation Clean Sweep® program. These surveys built a picture of pellet loss from point sources at plastics industry facilities across seventeen local council areas, through the environment and into the bay.
An initiative of Tangaroa Blue Foundation, this project was made possible through the support of partner organisations including Chemistry Australia, Streamline Media, City of Kingston, City of Wyndham, City of Greater Dandenong, Cleanwater Group, Victorian EPA and funding through the Victorian Government’s Port Phillip Bay Fund.
