BoatUS and NOAA Make Earth Day a Work Day: 400 Fishing Line Recycling Bins Built in Two Hours
Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) staffers and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) leaders gave a little back to mother earth today by teaming up to build 400 fishing line recycling bins in just under two hours. The three foot-long cylindrical bins constructed of PVC drain pipe are mounted to fishing piers, at launch ramps or marina boat docks, and are part of the Reel In and Recycle national fishing line recycling program. The bins are distributed to local groups around the country to help keep fishing line out of our waterways where it can be dangerous to wildlife.
