Cigarettes Are Litter

No Butts About It, Cigarettes are Litter
Do your part to help keep parks clean

Did you know that cigarette butts are the most frequently littered item? Cigarettes are not biodegradable, and the toxic material migrates into storm drains, along with food and pet waste containing harmful bacteria that should not be entering our watersheds.

So what can you do about it?

  • Don’t litter! Help remind friends, family members, neighbors not to throw cigarette butts and other trash on the ground, and to pick up dog poop.
  • See something? Say something. Call Keep Arizona Beautiful’s Litter Hotline when you see someone littering on/near the road. Just get a license plate number. Hotline: 1-877-3LITTER
