Florida marina given Clean Marina designation

The Key Largo Resorts Marina was recently awarded Clean Marina certification from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and The Clean Boating Partnership.

Some of Key Largo Resorts Marina's initiatives include the use of oil absorbers in bilges, utilization of recycling centers and the installation of multiple trash receptacles.

"We have developed a 'best practices' standard, which all of our vendors follow," said Candi MacDuff, Key Largo Resorts Marina dockmaster, in a statement.  "This certification not only applies to the marina, but to our entire facility team."

To receive the Clean Marina designation, marinas must comply with stringent environmental regulations and meet all Clean Marina criteria. Clean Marinas adopt safeguards that help keep solvents, sewage and fuel out of the water while protecting manatees and other marine life that make the waterways their habitat.

Located at Mile Marker 100 in Key Largo, Fla., the family of Key Largo Resorts includes three island-style properties - the Marina del Mar Key Largo, Ramada Limited Key Largo and the Holiday Inn Key Largo.
