Oyster Shell Recycling Project, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL

By
Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Florida Network Realty BK 3030920

I love reading about recyling, so this naturally caught my eye: oyster shelly recycling!

I've seen my friends on Nantucket reuse clam shells by running them through the dishwasher for more clams casino, but this is a slightly different type of recycling.

This project can help protect our beaches from erosion, safeguard archaeological sites, and keep those shells from the garbage dump. How cool!

They've done something like this in NJ...I'll have to check and see what the status of it is.  I love the idea!
