The Kent Island Bay Times - - Arts & Entertainment -

KENT IS­LAND — Au­to­bell Car Wash em­ploy­ees from the com­pany’s Mary­land stores con­ducted a beach cleanup of Kent Is­land’s Ter­rapin Na­ture Park on Oct. 27, brav­ing the nor’easter that un­for­tu­nately caused the can­cel­la­tion of the day’s of­fi­cial event planned by the Kent Is­land Beach Cleanups or­ga­ni­za­tion. The vol­un­teers were paid by Au­to­bell for their time and treated to break­fast and lunch by the com­pany.

The dozen em­ploy­ees from the Bel Air, An­napo­lis, and soon-to-open Ch­ester, Au­to­bell lo­ca­tions came armed with com­pany-pro­vided cleanup sup­plies, in­clud­ing boots, gloves, grab­bers, and trash bags. They col­lected an es­ti­mated 200 pounds of trash con­sist­ing pri­mar­ily of glass bot­tles, along with other items such a bro­ken crab pot, boat buoy, cof­fee ther­mos, fish­ing net and bro­ken flip-flops.

“Best prac­tices for en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion are in­te­gral to the Au­to­bell op­er­a­tion and are in­stilled in our com­pany cul­ture,” said Au­to­bell District Man­ager Joseph Noel. “Ev­ery­one en­joyed the chance to serve the com­mu­nity that day in the com­pany of their co­work­ers.”

Au­to­bell par­tic­i­pates in numer­ous wa­ter­way cleanups within the com­pany’s five-state area as part of its on­go­ing com­mit­ment to en­vi­ron­men­tal preser­va­tion. Ad­di­tion­ally, all Au­to­bell lo­ca­tions treat 100 per­cent of wash wa­ter used and re­cy­cle 80 to 100 per­cent de­pend­ing on the lo­ca­tion, as well as prac­tice other on-site wa­ter con­ser­va­tion pro­ce­dures.


Au­to­bell car wash em­ploy­ees rec­ntly picked up about 200 pounds of trash at Ter­rapin Beach.
