On April 10, it looked like this.
At North Ocean Park, earlier this month, six kids and four adults took to cleaning up the Pompano park grounds and in half an hour managed to pick up over 2,500 cigarette butts.
Why focus on cigarette butts and not other waste? Cigarette butts are non-biodegradable.
Want to help rid Broward County of cigarette butts? The next clean up will be at Hollywood North Beach Park on May 12 from 9 a.m. – noon. To volunteer, please contact Rosena Francois at firstname.lastname@example.org or 954-921-3020. Click here for more details on the event.
The event is coordinated by the Broward County Solid Waste and Recycling Service and supported by the American Lung Association of Florida. For up-to-date information on more cigarette butt clean-ups in Broward County, visit Broward Citizens for a Smoke-Free Workplace.
