Monofilament Recycling

Do you like to fish? Do you know what to do with your monofilament fishing line when you're done with it? To protect the environment and all of the animals and creatures that call the great outdoors home, it's best to recycle monofilament film. Recycling protects sealife, birds and even humans!

Monofilament is a synthetic thread or yarn composed of a single strand rather than twisted fibers. It is one of the most popular types of fishing line used today. Recycled monofilament is collected from recycling bins and then shipped to the Berkley Pure Fishing Company in Iowa. Berkley melts the line down into raw plastic pellets that can be made into other plastic products including tackle boxes, spools for line, fish habitats, and toys. It is not made into more monofilament line.

You can discard the line in a monofilament bin (pictured at right) at a Washington state park or mail it to:
