New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Recognizes
DRBA’s Cape May Ferry Terminal for Recycling Excellence
New Castle, Del. – The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), in conjunction with the Association of New Jersey Recyclers (ANJR), recognized and honored the Delaware River and Bay Authority’s (DRBA) Cape May Ferry Terminal operation for its recycling excellence, naming the operation a 2018 Rising Star at a special award ceremony held at the Jumping Brook Country Club in Neptune, NJ. Albert Fralinger III, Environmental Compliance and Safety Manager for the DRBA, accepted the award on behalf of the bi-state agency.
“We’re pleased and honored to be recognized by both NJDEP and ANJR for our recycling efforts at the Cape May Ferry Terminal,” Fralinger said. “It’s a credit to our employees who embraced the effort to broaden our recycling program. We look forward to building on our aggressive environmental recycling initiatives.”
The Cape May Ferry Terminal, which is operated by the DRBA, instituted facility-wide waste management and recycling changes to improve policies, practices, data management, site infrastructure, supplier relations, local and regional government outreach, customer support and employee environmental and recycling education and awareness. This holistic approach has resulted in significantly more material being recycled by staff and customers. In 2017, the Cape May Ferry Terminal recycled 38% of its solid waste. The Cape May Ferry Terminal recycles a diverse mix of materials including paper, cardboard, plastic, scrap metal, used cooking oil, e-waste, lamps and lighting waste, used oil, batteries and oil filters.
NJDEP’s goal with the program is to highlight the success of NJ agencies, businesses, individuals and others who go beyond the norm to advance recycling and to make these examples available to others who may emulate them. Each year, NJDEP and ANJR co-sponsor this symposium and luncheon, where recycling awards are presented to outstanding businesses, organizations, local government agencies, and individuals who have made significant contributions to recycling in New Jersey.
