Fishing Line Recycling Receptacles

 

Toronto Urban Fishing Ambassador is pleased to announce that a total of 50 “Fishing Line Recycling Receptacles” have been installed across the Toronto Waterfront Parks and a few selected inland parks with fishing ponds. These receptacles have been strategically placed at popular shore fishing areas for anglers to deposit used fishing line. Throughout the season, volunteers with TUFA will monitor these receptacles, empty and collect used line as required, then once each year we will send the used line to Berkley-Pure Fishing. From there, the line will be recycled and made into Berkley Fish-Habs… habitat structures that enhance our public fisheries. Why install these receptacles?

“We recognized that improperly discarded fishing line is not only unsightly garbage but that it can be hazardous (risk of entanglement) to wildlife such as birds, waterfowl and turtles. We wanted to highlight the need for anglers to properly dispose of their used line, at the source while they were fishing.”

TUFA would like to thank all the Toronto Park’s Managers for permission to install these receptacles in the parks. Thanks for supporting this endeavor to maintain clean and safe shorelines for all to enjoy.
