For Volunteers

Volunteers are a crucial part of MRRP as they help with everything from collecting fishing line while out on the water, to volunteering at beach and river cleanup events, to setting up, monitoring and regularly emptying monofilament recycling bins.

If you want to help beyond collecting monofilament line while you are on your boat and properly disposing of your own used line, consider sponsoring an indoor or outdoor recycling bin. By sponsoring a bin, you agree to set it up, maintain it, send the line to the recycling company, PureFishing, on a regular basis, and report data on what you collected from the bin.

You can get started by filling out and sending in the Volunteer Agreement linked to the right or by contacting John O’Connell, Texas Sea Grant Extension Agent, at 979-864-1558, or the Texas Sea Grant College Program at 979-845-3854.
