Here is the recycle info on the CA.Gov website
FISHING LINE RECYCLING STATIONS
Fishing Line can entangle and kill wildlife, and cause boat damage. It's NOT biodegradable and can remain in the environment for over 600 years.
Wildlife may suffer from loss of limbs from line entanglement and even death from gangrenous infection, or ingestion of the line. Fishing line discarded in our waterways also fouls boat propellers which are a serious litter problem, especially around boat ramps and fishing areas. Even when we dispose the line in trash bins it still goes to the landfill which creates the same hazards for wildlife, unless it is cut into small pieces. One solution to the problem is to have recycling containers available to boaters and fishermen to properly discard their used line.
The California Division of Boating and Waterways and the California Coastal Commission’s Boating Clean and Green program, the Keep the Delta Clean, the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary and the Boat U.S. Foundation have placed containers at many locations throughout the State. Please check the list of line recycling container locations that participate in recycling line, or view the new map below. https://dbw.parks.ca.gov/pages/28702/fi ... ForADA.pdf
If you are not near any of these recycling locations, please mail your used fishing line to Berkley Recycling Collection Center at 1900 18th street, Spirit Lake, Iowa 51360-1099
