Ceremony Kicks off Joint Effort for Oyster Shell Recycling

By  | 

State and local government entities, a non-profit fisheries conservation group and a Winterville restaurant have combined forces to boost oyster shell recycling in Pitt County.

Participants will celebrate their joint effort at a ceremony at 11 a.m. Thursday at Wimpie’s Steam Bar and Cajun Café, 206 Main St., Winterville.

The North Carolina Chapter of the Coastal Conservation Association, or CCA-NC, purchased a dump trailer for use in transporting oyster shells, primarily from Wimpie’s to a weigh station and recycling center at the Pitt County Landfill.

The trailer will also be available to collect oyster shells from large oyster roasts in the Pitt County area.
