Cigarette butts are litter too!

Partially smoked cigarettes, matches, disposable lighters, packaging,

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

do not throw butts out car windows;

be aware of litter ordinances.

Spread the word...Don't litter cigarette butts!

 

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 KBGIB 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.
