Mono recycling on Long Island

Rate this topic

9 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I am stripping an old reel of mono to replace with braid. I don't want to just throw away hundreds of feet of mono since that can't be good for the enviornment and I've heard about programs that take and recycle or destroy mono line which seems like a much better idea. Anybody know of a place on Long Island (hopefully Nassau County) that would take old mono?

 

Thanks!

Tackle shops?

 

Here in CT most tackle shops have a bin for old mono.  Also mono bins at most state boat launches. 

 

Thanks for thinking of this. Every bit helps.

It’s been a while but I think Jones Beach Field 10 has a bin for old lines right on the pier

Field 10 does, so does green island under the bridge and captree <- it’s elusive, meaning it gets destroyed alot.

There are a few containers out there at piers and such. Look up “Berkeley recycling”, I usually just mail it to them when I have enough to stuff a 9x12 envelope with it. Scum bags end up putting all their garbage in the mono bins at piers ruining any chance of recycling the stuff, I think this method at least has a chance of ending with the line getting recycled.
