MarineMax location gains Clean Marina designation

MarineMax earned the Maryland Clean Marina award for its Joppa location.

“By working with our service department and our customers, we now have all areas of the marina involved in the Clean Marina process,” manager Jennifer Keller said in a statement. “We’ve gotten a lot of support from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources staff, which made the process pretty simple.”

To meet award criteria, MarineMax Gunpowder Cove purchased a fuel spill response kit, educated its customers and outside contractors on green practices and implemented a recycling program for cans, bottles and shrink wrap.

MarineMax Gunpowder Cove is Maryland’s largest Sea Ray dealer and is also a service center.

This is the 122nd certified Maryland Clean Marina, according to the state’s Department of Natural Resources.
