CCS NOW ACCEPTING FISHING LINE FOR DISPOSAL
Grand Island Area Clean Community System, in partnership with Izaak Walton League, is now accepting monofilament line at 3661 N Sky Park Rd 2B, in Grand Island NE.
Monofilament line, or fishing line, is non-biodegradable and can remain in the environment for over 600 years. It cannot be recycled with other plastics. Many fish, birds, and animals get tangled up in fishing line each year and can lose limbs or die. Monofilament line can cause problems with boat props or mowing equipment. And what fisherman has not caught a “big one”, only to find a large tangle of fishing line at the end of your rod?
Berkley, a leading retailer of fishing line, rods, and apparel have developed the Berkley Conservation Institute to support conservation and angler recruitment. Berkley has stepped up to the challenge and is accepting monofilament line of any brand for recycling. The recycled fishing line will be used to create fish habitat structures, which encourage plant growth and attract fish.
Please call Clean Community System at 308-385-5095 with questions or stop by our office to drop off your monofilament line.
