Monofilament Recycling

Sponsored by The Wildlife Trust Fund

♻️ REEL IN AND RECYCLE ♻️

We have launched a fishing line recycling program!

Did you know that improperly discarded fishing line (monofilament) is not only an eyesore, but it poses a threat to wildlife, and can remain in the environment for 600 years?! 

We have placed fishing line collection bins at :

 

HRAA boat launch

French Village Bridge

Smithtown Bridge

Silver Hill Bridge

Tabor Bridge

Hillsdale Bridge

Cassidy Lake

Darlings Lake

We'll collect the used fishing line, and then send it away to be recycled!

Got some broken line in your fishing vest or tackle boxes? ------ Drop it off!

Find some fishing line hanging in the bushes? ----- We'll take it!

Let's see how much we can collect and recycle this year! ♻️

 We’ve collected a significant amount of fishing line throughout 2019-2020, and we are currently measuring and weighting it to determine how much we removed from the watershed before we send it to Berkley Fishing for recycling!

Kids from Nature Camp helped make some fun signs for the monofilament bins!
