Keep America Beautiful Assisting in Clean MVT Streets

Wednesday June 25, 2014

The MVT CID has been awarded a Keep America Beautiful grant to install five cigarette ashtrays on our streets. The ashtrays keep the MVT clean, reduce fire risk, and help the environment. Cigarette butt litter is not just an eyesore; it has significant environmental effects too. Cigarette filters are carried as runoff from streets to drains and ultimately to the river, bays and ocean where they poison marine life. Help us keep the MVT free of cigarette butts litter.
