Monofilament recycling is our newest program venture and we are betting that it will show to be very worthwhile as it provides multiple sites along the Shenandoah for fishermen to deposit derelect fishing line. The idea here is to place these bins at heavily fished spots and monitor these bins year round and then send the collected monofilament (fishing line) to a suitable recyling center. This is not only for cosmetic appeal to nature but also to keep animals from becoming entangled in debris. This is one of the more dangerous things to have laying around out in nature and if you come across any or if you enjoy to fish please dispose of your fishing line poperly.
We are partnered with our pals "The Friends of The North Fork" on this project and would like to give a special thank you to D.G.I.F. for helping us install these properly, to C.E. Thompsons in Edinburg for donating the materials neccessary, and to Mr. Jack Chapman for agreeing to monitor these bins year round. This would not be possible without each of you.
Here are a few pictures of our first batch of bins before they are installed.
