In southern New Jersey, the shore is a place for spending time with family and friends, celebrating life, and making memories. It’s a part of the lives of those who live here, and – as a company that has been part of the region for more than 100 years – the shore is part of who we are too.
To help preserve the beaches we all know and love, a group of Atlantic City Electric employees, along with their family and friends, recently participated in Clean Ocean Action's annual Beach Sweeps in Atlantic City, N.J. Volunteers removed more than 8,000 pieces of debris littered across the beaches and recorded the quantity and types of debris found. The data will be used in annual reports to help identify pollution problems, aid legislators in enacting laws to protect the marine environment, and inform local, state, and international efforts to combat marine pollution.
