Clean and Beautiful: cigarette butts are litter too
Williams-Grand Canyon News

Williams Clean and Beautiful plans to clean up cigarette litter in Williams over the next two months.

Arizona Clean and Beautiful gave the Williams organization a grant to review litter laws and ordinances, raise public awareness that a cigarette butt is litter, place ash receptacles around town and distribute portable car and/or pocket ashtrays to adult smokers. The ashtrays give adult smokers a way to properly dispose of cigarette butts.

According to Clean and Beautiful Chairperson Carol Glassburn, the Williams organization will conduct two litter scans - a preliminary scan prior to this weekend's veterans memorial dedication and a follow-up scan a minimum of eight weeks after the installation of the ash receptacles. Glassburn said she will report the findings to Arizona Clean and Beautiful.

Williams Clean and Beautiful members will hand out free pocket ashtrays to adults at the dedication of the Williams Own Veterans Memorial and at the reception at the American Legion.

More information is available from Glassburn at (928) 635-4503.
