Simple Best Practices for Operation Clean Sweep Compliance

As a proud OCS Blue member, PSC is committed to helping our customers achieve the highest level of OCS compliance on their own. Below are some best practices that plants can perform themselves to minimize the potential for pellet loss and plastic to enter the environment.

  • Cover your dumpsters. When they get too full, they are subject to losses from high wind and during handling.

  • Segregate plastic dumpsters from other waste to maximize the value of your scrap material. 

  • Use sock strainers during railcar washing. 

  • Have a plan for heavy rain days. Activate a “hot spot” plan with your vacuum truck provider when rain is expected.

  • Keep outlet caps on the cars whenever the car is not being worked. 

  • Consider waste-to-energy before you assign downgraded material to the landfill.
