Keep Lorain County Beautiful is pleased to present the Lorain County Cigarette Litter Prevention Program! Cigarette waste products are a big problem….the number one most littered item to be exact! In an effort to help combat this problem Keep America Beautiful put together a grant program that affiliates can apply for and use the money to create meaningful solutions in their area. Keep Lorain County Beautiful was a recipient of the 2019 CLPP grant and we got right to work!
The Keep Lorain County Beautiful – Cigarette Litter Prevention Task Force has accomplished:
Raising public awareness about cigarette litter through advertising and social media
Ordered multiple mounted ash receptacles and standalone ash receptacles to be placed in three pilot study areas (see below for locations)
Handed out 600 personal portable and auto ashtrays to smokers who can use them
Find an ash receptacle
The following locations will have one of the mounted or standalone ash receptacles pictured
