Making a Positive Impact on Virginia Beach

Recycling Bin decorated in celebration of summit to prevent marine pollution and preserve wildlife.

The Marine Debris Summit took place on September 27 & 28th 2022 at the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center, Virginia Beach. The summit focused on the prevention of consumer debris (bottles, food containers, cigarette butts, bags and other common harmful sources of litter) found in the oceans.

Held once every three years, the Summit is additionally an opportunity to bring together experts from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), to discuss how to tackle issues facing the oceans and harming wildlife.

Virginia native Sarah Gallahan, who specializes in creating professional art murals, kicked off the Summit’s celebrations by painting the façade of the Aquariums North Building. Sarah’s illustration depicts three sea turtles swimming underwater, reiterating the Aquarium’s mission to protect endangered species and the marine environment. During her time with the Aquarium, she gave us the privilege of imprinting her artwork onto the Aquarium’s own Glasdon Nexus 96G outdoor recycling container.

This eye-catching and alluring work evokes a bright and powerful message that is synonymous with what both the Aquarium and our recycling containers aim to capture. Eliminating waste from the Oceans and the environment by correct and appropriate disposal of waste for recycling is a vital feature of the Nexus City Range. It is hoped that these standout bins will assist the waste disposal on the Virginia beachfront, helping to ensure no sources of harmful litter make their way into the Ocean.



Our Outdoor Recycling Bins & Containers are resilient and durable, designed to withstand adverse weather conditions, like the salty sea winds found on the Virginia Beach Front.
