The American Littoral Society’s “Shuck It, Don’t Chuck It” Shell Recycling Program is happy to announce the opening of our second community drop-off station outside the Shore Fresh Seafood Market and Restaurant in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ.
“I am pleased to announce another milestone in Shore Fresh Seafood Market's partnership with the American Littoral Society! We have officially opened the 'Shore Fresh Community Shell Recycling Drop-Off Site.' This drop-off will help cultivate a community of sustainable aquaculture and conservation. These recycled oyster shells can be used for a plethora of green projects along the shore - just like the living shoreline project in Forked River! I want to offer a huge Thank you to Kyle Patterson, Nicole Haines, Serena Celestino Lutz, and the entire market staff at Shore Fresh Point Beach for all the help over the past year with this project! I am so proud of the work that everyone has put towards this in the past year more and look forward to the future.”
The new site is located at 57 Channel Drive in Point Pleasant Beach, next to the inlet for Lake Louise. We are thrilled to be working with Shore Fresh to increase the reach of our shell recycling program, which in turn increases our coastal restoration capacity.
To find the drop-off site, go to the waterside of the Shore Fresh parking area closest to the Broadway bridge (towards the right when facing the front of the restaurant). You can also find the location marked with a yellow pin on the Participating Restaurants interactive map on the Shell Recycling page of our website.
When using the shell drop-off site, please follow the instructions on the sign. We’re glad to take your oyster, clam, mussel or scallop shells, but no trash, please! After dropping your shells, use the QR code to upload your donation data, or text our Shuck It, Don’t Chuck It! program coordinator Kyle Patterson at 732-708-5472.
We again want to thank Shore Fresh for being so accommodating, as well as everyone who contributes to our shell recycling program! Be sure to check out our website for upcoming events regarding our program and for more information on how to recycle your shell with us!
