Monofilament Recycling
Programs & Resources

Together, we can make a difference one reel at a time!

Jeff & Beverly Annabel
Inventors of LineOFF

LineOFF was created to encourage frequent line changes and environmental recycling of fishing line. LineOFF makes changing fishing line fast, easy and efficient. Routine fishing line changes keeps old, stretched and used line out of the waters where we enjoy fishing.

Together, we can do something about it. Recycling is an easy way to help protect our earth and oceans. Let’s prevent these things from happening:

LineOFF’s mission is to eliminate fishing line from our oceans. Most monofilament line is non-biodegradable and may last up to 600 years. Unfortunately, fishing line cannot be put into our household recycling bins. However, the good news is there are recycling programs where you can take used line to bait & tackle shops and other locations. Please visit the following websites for additional information about recycling and locations where you can bring or send your old fishing line to be recycled.
