Monofilament Recovery & Recycling Program

Every day, improperly discarded monofilament fishing line causes devastating problems for marine life and the environment.  Marine mammals, sea turtles, fish and birds become injured from entanglements, or might ingest the line, often dying as a result.  Human divers and swimmers are also at risk from entanglements and the line can also damage boat propellers.

Monofilament needs to be recycled! 

Monofilament fishing line can be recycled

Monofilament is a strand of strong, flexible plastic used for fishing. It is non-degradable in water and can last 600 years! Even thrown in the trash, it is a threat. It can be blown out by the wind or taken out by wildlife scavengers looking for a free meal.

The Monofilament Recovery & Recycling Program (MRRP) is a statewide effort 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, and to conduct volunteer monofilament line cleanup events.

Line can only be recycled by placing it into specifically designated monofilament recycling bins. MRRP is striving to establish a statewide network of indoor and outdoor bins where monofilament can be recycled. Fishing line cannot be recycled by placing it into your recycling bin at home. To locate an indoor or outdoor monofilament recycling bin near you, click on the county nearest you below.

Outdoor recycling bins constructed of PVC and mounted at piers, boat ramps, and marinas are being installed throughout the state. It is easy to build your own outdoor recycling bin.

Indoor recycling bins are hosted by tackle shops and department stores. Contact your favorite tackle shop to see if they are hosting a bin.  If not, encourage them to do so by contacting Marine Fisheries, the MRRP statewide coordinator at Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Our friends at FWC are looking for VOLUNTEER county coordinators for Clay, Duval and Nassau.

The county coordinator will be responsible for assigning volunteers to monitor bins located throughout the county and adding new bins where needed.
