CLPP 2

Cigarette Butts Are Litter Too!

Partially smoked cigarettes, matches, disposable lighters, packaging,

and cigarette butts are all part of this growing national problem.

What can YOU do?

Use a portable ashtray in your car;

carry a pocket ashtray or use ash receptacles when smoking outside;

do not flick cigarette butts out of car windows or during your smoke break;

be aware of litter ordinances.


Exciting news!

Keep Golden Isles Beautiful placed THIRD in the NATION

among Keep America Beautiful affiliates for our Cigarette Litter

Prevention Program (CLPP)! Keep Golden Isles Beautiful received a $500.00 prize

and recognition at a national conference held in January in Washington, DC.

Many thanks to all CLPP volunteers and partners, UGA Marine Extention

Service and Georgia Sea Grant for helping to bring this honor to

the Golden Isles of Georgia!

 

WE ALL LIVE DOWNSTREAM; THE RIVER BEGINS AT YOUR DOOR.

Even if you live miles away from a river or stream, you may be polluting

the water without even knowing it. Anything that enters a storm water system

is discharged untreated into the water bodies we use for swimming,

fishing and drinking water. Practice healthy household habits and keep

common pollutants like pesticides, pet waste, grass clippings and automotive

fluids off the ground and out of storm water. Adopt these healthy household

habits and help protect lakes, streams, rivers, wetlands and coastal waters.


HAZARDOUS WASTES

Did you know improper handling and disposal of hazardous wastes

is against the law and can result in fines and expensive cleanup costs?

These wastes include pesticides, paint, motor oil, solvents, gasoline,

freon, antifreeze, batteries, cleaners and many others. Help us keep our

community clean. Use proper and legal methods to dispose of any

hazardous wastes. Contact the local office of EPD at 912-264-7284

or Keep Golden Isles Beautiful for further information.


SCRAP TIRES

Did you know scrap tires must be disposed of properly

according to local and state laws? Do not dump them on streets, roads,

highways or in waterways. It is also illegal to burn any scrap tires unless

properly permitted. Help us keep our community clean. Recycle your tires

with a business that is legally permitted to collect or transport scrap

tires. Contact us for more information.
