Monofilament is single strand fishing line and is typically a strong flexible clear plastic that is tinted blue, pink or green. Discarded monofilament is harmful to wildlife and a nuisance to boaters. Recycling monofilament helps us keep it out of our water systems and landfills.
Groups are encouraged to help keep South Carolina waterways free from monofilament by adopting a recycling bin at your local dock or fishing ramp. PalmettoPride and SCDNR will supply you with all of the materials you need to get started.
How to adopt a bin:
• Contact PalmettoPride at 1-877-PAL-PRDE to secure the bin location of your choice.
• Monitor the bin’s quantity of monofilament.
• Email Berkley@purefishing.com to receive pre-paid postage boxes for your monofilament.
• Send used monofilament to Berkley Recycling at 1900 18th Street, Spirit Lake, Iowa 51360.
Berkely Recycling will then turn your recycled monofilament into products such as Fish-Habs which are artificial underwater habitat structures.
For more information on monofilament recycling, contact Joe Berry.
