The city of Bluefield was recently awarded a $1,000 grant from Keep America Beautiful Cigarette Litter Prevention Program. This money will allow Bluefield to buy cigarette butt receptacles and fund a public awareness campaign, said Melanie Farmer, community relations coordinator.
These receptacles will be placed throughout downtown Bluefield to reduce the cigarette butt litter ending up on the streets and sidewalks.
Imagine a city isn't talking banning smokers.
They want to make it easier for smokers to behave responsibly and dispose of their butts.
It's like a whole new world and no one is (yet) talking of banning it outdoors.
I'm thinking of you Mayor Bloomberg.
