Bayshore Family of Cos. receives 2019 Distinguished Leadership Award

The Bayshore Family of Cos., Woodbridge Township, New Jersey, has been named the Environmental Sustainability and Energy Conservation Award Winner in the Distinguished Leadership Award category at the 2019 Jersey Shore Partnership Summer Celebration.

Valerie and Frank Montecalvo, owners of the Bayshore Family of Cos., accepted the award during the celebration, which took place June 10 at Fort Hancock in Sandy Hook, New Jersey, with more than 500 people in attendance.

The Jersey Shore Partnership Summer Celebration honors individuals and organizations that have made extraordinary contributions to the organization’s mission of shore protection and beach replenishment.

“The 127 miles of sandy beaches which make up our Jersey Shore represent a priceless state and national treasure, which drives New Jersey’s $43 billion annual tourism economy,” Valerie Montecalvo said when receiving the award. “Frank and I are deeply honored, along with our entire Bayshore team, for being recognized for our life’s work to advance sustainable materials management through recycling while seeking to operate 100 percent green businesses powered 100 percent by renewable energy.”

Bayshore has previously received several notable honors from the state. Valerie and Frank Monteclavo were also inducted into the Construction & Demolition Recycling Association (CDRA) Hall of Fame in 2017.
