The New Jersey port of Barnegat Light is the latest addition to the Fishing for Energy initiative, the program providing commercial fishermen a free way to recycle old and unusable fishing gear. Gear collected at the port will be stripped of metals for recycling with the help of Schnitzer Steel and processed into clean, renewable energy at the Covanta Union Energy-from-Waste facility (incinerator) in Rahway, NJ.

Fishing for Energy is a partnership between the Fairfield, NJ-based Covanta Energy (Covanta), the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Marine Debris Program, and Schnitzer Steel Industries, Inc. It was established in 2008 to reduce the financial burden imposed on commercial fishermen when disposing of old, derelict (gear that is lost in the marine environment), or unusable fishing gear and thereby reduce the amount of gear that ends up in U.S. coastal waters.

The ceremony was held at the Old Borough Hall in Barnegat Light, the partnership installed a collection bin for old, abandoned or lost fishing gear from area commercial fishermen.

Paul Gilman, chief sustainability officer for Covanta Energy spoke on behalf of the partnership. Mayor Kirk Larson of Barnegat Light and the town's Recycling Coordinator, Kathy Guerrero also served as speakers.
