The City of Hopkinsville wants to ensure the community remains litter free, especially from discarded cigarette butts.
The Hopkinsville Beautification Commission is partnering with the Hopkinsville Surface and Stormwater Utility to take part in a national program called Keep America Beautiful Cigarette Litter Prevention program this year.
Officials will be targeting cigarette litter throughout the city, especially in high traffic areas like East 9th Street and South Main Street and local parks.
Officials say the program’s approach involves all stakeholders in the cigarette litter problem, including businesses, law enforcement, local governments, community organizations and, importantly, smokers themselves.
Beautification Committee chairperson, Kelly Jackson stated simple actions like installing ash receptacles and distributing pocket ashtrays have made a big difference in decreasing litter and ultimately keeping other communities beautiful.
Ms. Jackson added by raising awareness, she expected to see similar reductions in Hopkinsville.
In 2008, roughly 200 communities across the nation reported seeing an average 46% reduction in littered butts as a result of the program.
