Monofilament Collection Tube
Used fishing line left on the shoreline, on piers or docks, or in the water is harmful to fish, wildlife, people, and boat motors. Fishing line or monofilament takes 600 years to disintegrate
while in the water. Recycling offers a way to keep it out of the environment and converts it to make useful items. Remember, we can only do this with monofilament & fluorocarbon and not braided type lines.
