Cigarette waste receptacles to be placed around the downtown core

Daybreak Rotary and North Island-Powell River MP Rachel Blaney are joining with the Downtown BIA to step up the Cigarette Waste Recycling Program by donating to the purchase of cigarette butt receptacles.

These receptacles will be placed around Downtown Campbell River in locations which indicate a large number of discarded butts.

Cigarette butts are the number one litter problem and the filters have been named the top ocean microplastics hazard, says Jan Wade, executive director of the Campbell River Downtown BIA.
