Car wash em­ploy­ees clean up beach

The Star Democrat - - LOCAL -

STEVENSVILLE — 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 com­pa­nypro­vided 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 co-work­ers.”
