Fifteen monofilament recycling bins have been placed at marinas and will be recording the line collected. Beyond that, people visiting the marinas are being educated about marine debris and have the opportunity to download the SEA-MDI app Marine Debris Tracker. The sticker below is also placed on the bins.
