The Waste Authority is launching the Keep Monroe County Beautiful initiative by bringing attention to cigarette butts. Being the last acceptable form of plastic litter, cigarette butts make up 30% of ALL litter collected in the United States.
With the backing of Keep America Beautiful’s Cigarette Litter Prevention Program, we are sweeping Monroe County of cigarette litter! Focusing on areas close to our waterways, The Waste Authority wants to bring attention to the harm it causes our environment and aquatic nature.
Protect nature and make the pledge to Live Without Litter!
