City Clean and Green Commission Launches Butts are Litter Too Campaign

The City of Fredericksburg’s Clean & Green Commission is launching its annual Cigarette Butt Litter Campaign Nov. 1 – 7 throughout downtown. As in past campaigns, The Clean and Green Commission is doing several things to help educate the public that throwing butts on the ground is not a harmless act; in fact, there is a new increased penalty for littering (which includes improper disposal of smoking materials).
