WTVR CBS6 shows why the Virginia Oyster Shell Recycling Program is powering Virginia

June 20, 2017

WTVR CBS6's Jessica Noll interviewed Virginia Oyster Shell Recycling Program founder Todd Janeski on the June 2017 episode of "Powering Virginia."

The segment followed Janeski as he and volunteers planted more than 300 bushels of spat-seeded shells on the Piankatank River. The shells were collected from area restaurants and businesses, and aged for nearly a year at VCU Rice Rivers Center.

The Virginia Oyster Shell Recycling Program and VCU Rice Rivers Center can be seen at 10:33 into the program.
