KDB recently received a $5,000 grant from Keep America Beautiful to ramp up our cigarette litter prevention program. The grant funds will be used to purchase and install more cigarette butt receptacles, and for education and marketing tools to prevent cigarette butt litter.

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.
