The bristles are not biodegradable. The issue with recycling bristles is that they are very small and lightweight: curbside recycling will not work. The bristles will have to be landfilled. In total, this will result in less than 0.01 ounces of plastic waste (a dramatic improvement from plastic toothbrushes).
