Carpentry students build and install FOR shell recycling bin

The Urbanna Town Marina now has an oyster shell recycling container provided and managed by Friends of the Rappahannock (FOR).

This container was built and installed by the Northern Neck Technical Center carpentry students, led by carpentry teacher Mike Sisson.

It serves as a community drop-off location for oyster shells only, reported FOR oyster restoration specialist Jennifer Sagan. Do not dump trash in the bin, or other seafood scrap. Keep in mind that a bag carrying shells counts as trash, just dump the shells directly into the bin.

All the oyster shells recycled in this container will be used directly in FOR’s oyster restoration projects in Urbanna Creek, said Sagan.

FOR and partners work to improve leases….
