Cigarette butts are the number one item littered in America. In 2014, Belmont's Coastal Cleanup Day volunteers collected a whopping 1,338 littered cigarette butts. Aside from being unsightly, they are toxic to our environment.
Once they are flicked on the ground, they can make their way to the creeks and storm drains. Ultimately, the butts and they chemicals they contain end up in the bay, damaging wildlife and living organisms they come in contact with.
Be an environmentally friendly smoker and place your cigarette butts in proper receptacles or portable/pocket ashtrays. Need a portable ashtray for your vehicle? FREE -Portable vehicle ashtrays and pocket ashtrays can be obtained at the Public Works Department, Suite 385 in City Hall.
