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.
Monofilament Recovery & Recycling Program
The Monofilament Recovery &
Recycling Program (MRRP) is a statewide effort in Florida to educate
the public on the problems caused by monofilament line left in the
environment, to encourage recycling through a network of line recycling
bins and drop-off locations in Florida , and to conduct volunteer
monofilament line cleanup events.
