Monofilament Fishing Line Recycling

Did you know that it takes over 500 years for monofilament fishing line to decompose? 

Meanwhile, that discarded line can tangle itself around a boat prop or worse yet, marine life.

The Marina and Tacoma Yacht Club are providing four recycle bins where anglers can discard their used monofilament fishing line:

  • At the boat launch,
  • At the guest dock of the Yacht club,
  • On the outside wall of our tackle shop
  • At Les Davis Pier on Ruston Way  

Yacht Club volunteers regularly box it up and send it to Berkeley Conservation where they recycle the monofilament and document the return for the granting agency. Learn More
