Cigarette butt litter is the # 1 most littered item in the U.S.

Since 2007, Keep Denton Beautiful has implemented the Cigarette Litter Prevention Program (CLPP) to raise public awareness of the problem of cigarette butt litter, and actively reduce litter in the Denton community.  KDB’s focus for 2014 is the Downtown Denton Square, where preliminary results are showing an average 25% reduction in cigarette litter following a series of cleanups; the installation of permanent ash receptacles throughout Downtown; and an ongoing social marketing campaign.

  • If you’re a smoker… Help “Keep the Square Clean” by using the new ash receptacles placed around the Downtown area!
  • If you’re a business owner/area stakeholder… Request a campaign poster to hang up and promote the program message (i.e., Cigarette butts are litter – dispose of them properly).
  • If you’re a Denton resident or friend of our community… Help us get some buzz going! Share and re-tweet, forward our newsletter features, and talk up the campaign.
  • If you still want to do more… Volunteer to help with a cleanup, or give us your feedback.
