On Wednesday Surfrider teamed up with the La Jolla Town Council Nell Carpenter Beautification/Streetscape Committee and I Love A Clean San Diego to install the first set of ten strategic ashcans.

Cigarette butts continue to plague San Diego as the most common litter item found each year by local environmental organizations. Recent smoking bans at beaches and parks have a positive impact but volunteers still find plenty of cigarette litter on local streets and alleyways. I Love A Clean San Diego and the Surfrider Foundation’s San Diego Chapter are taking a proactive approach to prevent this eyesore and environmental hazard.

Many thanks to Manase, Roger, Ken, Natalie, Ester, Samantha and everyone else that came out to help!
