Oyster Shell Recycling is a great way for a restaurant to divert waste from the landfill and help the environment.
In Maryland, Oyster Shell Recycling helps to improve water quality and habitats in the Chesapeake Bay. Mundea helps connect restaurants with the Oyster Recovery Partnership, a non-profit that manages the whole process from oyster shells pickup at local restaurants to designing and implementing oyster restoration projects.
By separating oyster shells from the waste stream, the trash bins and trash area generally become cleaner. Mundea assists restaurants with the implementation of the Oyster Shell Recycling Program and organization of the trash area to optimize space and waste diversion.
Next to environmental benefits, restaurants may also benefit from lower costs for Trash Pickup Services as well as State Tax Benefits provided by the State of Maryland.
In Maryland, the State Tax Benefits allow restaurants that are eligible to receive a $5 Maryland tax credit for every bushel of oyster shell that is recycled and returned to the State’s inventory. Up to $1,500 annually may be credited.
