TRASH THE CIG, NOT THE CITY 

LOVE THE COV, NO IFS, ANDS, OR BUTTS! 

Cigarettes are the most commonly littered item worldwide, with approximately 75% of smokers admitting to littering cigarette butts. Cigarettes are not biodegradable - they are made of micro plastics and can leach harmful chemicals such as arsenic, formaldehyde, and carbon monoxide, damaging the earth, water, and wildlife. 

 

With the help of a grant through Keep America Beautiful and the partnership of many local businesses, Keep Covington Beautiful is installing public cigarette urns throughout the city.
