Reel In and Recycle

Our fishing line recycling bins prevent tangled fishing line, lead sinkers, hooks, and lures from becoming debris in our waterways. Adopt, host, or sponsor a fishing line recycling bin to improve waterways for wildlife and humans alike. If you’re an angler, check out our bin locations map link below.
