CLPP Kickoff Event a Success

On June 14, KDB staff and Board members, along with partners SCRAP Denton, City Council Member, Keely Briggs, and local citizens, kicked-off the Cigarette Litter Prevention Program (CLPP) with a ribbon-cutting of a newly installed cigarette butt receptacle at Quakertown Park. Five other cigarette butt receptacles have been installed throughout Quakertown Park. Read about the CLPP and associated events here. View the City of Denton Newsbreak story about the event here.

KDB Board Members and staff cut ribbon on the new cigarette butt receptacle.

Goals of the campaign:

  • Recycle 1 million cigarette butts
  • Identify Top 10 cigarette litter “hot spots” in Denton
  • Hand out 2400+ CLPP bumper stickers and decals
  • Hand out 1200+ car and pocket ash trays
  • Host 5 cigarette litter prevention workshops
  • Reduce annual cigarette litter in scan locations by 40%

The CLPP is supported by a grant from Keep America Beautiful.

This year marked our 25th Redbud Festival! We know the weather wasn’t ideal, but it was still a great time. Thank you for coming out and doing yoga with us, looking at art, listening to music, and learning about trees. We’ll see you next year.
