Bayshore/Montecalvo Family of Companies receives 2019 Distinguished Leadership Award
Valerie & Frank Montecalvo, owners of Bayshore Family of Companies of Woodbridge Township, NJ, were presented with the Environmental Sustainability and Energy Conservation Award at the 2019 Jersey Shore Partnership Summer Celebration on June 10th.
"It is such an honor for me to present this award to Valerie and Frank, longstanding friends who have contributed their time and resources tirelessly for decades to so many important causes beyond their most impressive work at Bayshore," said Assemblywoman Yvonne Lopez who presented the award. "Bayshore's diverse and extensive recycling companies define environmental sustainability and their commitment to energy conservation through the use of renewable energy sources is a model for others to follow," offered the Assemblywoman.
"The recent passing of Jersey Shore Partnership founder and former Chairman, New Jersey State Senator Tom Gagliano makes us all stop and reflect on his vision for coastal protection in his 27 years of devotion to this cause," said Valerie Montecalvo in receiving the award. "The 127 miles of sandy beaches which make up our Jersey Shore represents a priceless State and National treasure which drives New Jersey's 43 billion-dollar annual tourism economy. 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% green businesses powered 100% by renewable energy," added Montecalvo.
Bayshore has previously received many notable honors including the receipt of a Governor's Environmental Excellence Award, an NJ Future Award for Innovative Industrial Sustainability and EarthShare New Jersey's Environmental Leadership Award. Valerie and Frank have also been inducted into the National Construction & Demolition Recycling Association Hall of Fame and Bayshore was named "2007 National Recycling Facility of the Year" from this same organization. The Montecalvo's are longstanding champions of many major charities as well as numerous area hospitals, athletic teams, schools, clubs, art centers, and Veteran's organizations. Management of the companies is truly a family affair. Nicole Montecalvo-Oppelt is the Chief Marketing Officer and husband Michael Oppelt is the Director of Class A (curbside recycling) Operations, (both Monmouth University Alumni). Son, Frankie, is both Chief of Field Operations and a Champion International Race Car driver.
