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) Millville Executive Airport for its recycling excellence, naming the operation a 2022 Rising Star at a special award ceremony held at the Jumping Brook Country Club in Neptune, NJ. Albert Fralinger III, Environmental, Health and Safety manager for the DRBA, accepted the award on behalf of the bi-state agency.
The Millville Executive Airport recycles a diverse mix of materials including paper, plastic bottles, aluminum cans, scrap metal, used oil, concrete and soil. The airport also recycles polycarbonate runway signs that were previously disposed. Millville Executive Airport also improved its recycling education and training programs for staff.
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 the symposium and luncheon, where recycling awards are presented to outstanding businesses, organizations, local government agencies, and individuals who have made significant contributions to recycling.
