Cigarette Litter and Trash Clean Up Event

Additional Information

In support of the Great American Smokeout, the Smoke-free, Multi-Agency, Resource Team (SMART) is having a cigarette butt and trash clean up to bring attention to the problems of cigarette litter and secondhand smoke around children during recreation.

The clean up will be held at the Clio City Park. Volunteers will meet near the pavilion that is next to the children’s playground. Gloves and garbage bags will be provided. (If it is raining at the time, the event will be held the next day)

Discarded cigarette butts are the most common form of litter. Studies show that cigarette butts are toxic, slow to decompose and costly to remove. Children routinely pick them up and try to place them in their mouths. In addition, butts that are not fully extinguished pose a fire and burn risk. Butts also contain dangerous chemicals and 80 percent of discarded butts find their way into our water systems and detract from the quality of our drinking water.

Contact Ann Goldon at (810) 341-5898 if you plan to attend the clean up.
