CBF Expands Shell Recycling Effort to Norfolk, Williamsburg

Following the success of a pilot partnership project to recycle oyster and clam shells from Virginia Beach restaurants and use them for oyster restoration projects in Hampton Roads waterways, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) has expanded the effort to Norfolk and Williamsburg.
Last year's pilot project was led by Lynnhaven River 2007. Volunteers gathered more than 1,000 bushels of oyster and clam shells and dried and cleaned them for reef restoration in the Lynnhaven River. Now, work continues with support from CBF, the City of Virginia Beach, several Virginia Beach restaurants, and Le Yaca restaurant in Williamsburg.
