Welcome to Keep Blanco Beautiful’s Cigarette Litter Prevention Program (CLPP) page!

*Don’t Leave Your Butts Behind*

Are you tired of seeing cigarette butts littered along the sidewalks and streets? Join Keep Blanco Beautiful’s (KBB) Cigarette Litter Prevention Program (CLPP). KBB has partnered with Keep America Beautiful to begin implementing this program. The project’s goal is to decrease the amount of cigarette butts around town by providing more receptacles/personal ashtrays and educate community members. KBB is hopeful to have a cigarette butt litter free historic district by May 2020 but needs the help of the community! Let’s join together to  create a cleaner, greener, more beautiful town!  (Must be 18 or older.)

Pocket Ashtrays

Do you smoke and have no where to put your used cigarette? Well, KBB has ordered pocket ashtrays to distribute to all our Blanco citizens who smoke! A pocket ashtray is a great little anti litter device designed to store cigarette butts until they can be disposed of properly.  We hope these will reduce the amount of cigarette butts on the ground throughout town! Fill out the link below to be placed on the list for a pocket ashtray: https://forms.gle/2mDCDLp7yrELwxT27

In Oct. 2019, KBB had a market booth day to distribute pocket ash trays and PR items promoting KBB, Don’t Mess with Texas, and the CLPP. Over 100 bags were passed out!
