  • Covanta
    Covanta, working with NFWF, NOAA and Schnitzer Steel Industries, Inc., provides a no-cost way for fishermen to dispose of old, derelict or unusable fishing gear through the Fishing for Energy program. The program works with state and local agencies, community and industry groups and local ports to collect and recycle gear. The remaining waste is converted into clean, renewable electricity for local communities. Since 2008, more than 2.4 million pounds of marine debris have been collected.
