The Butt Blitz is a single-day event that aims to remove as much cigarette butt litter as possible from the environment across Canada. Coordinators recruit volunteers to pick up cigarette butts locally and then send the butts to TerraCycle Canada for recycling. This event is held to raise awareness of the negative impacts that cigarette butt litter has on ecosystems and health, and prevent future littering through the distribution of pocket ashtrays.
Join Fredericton's Butt Blitz to help make an environmental impact in our community. All you have to do is collect cigarette butts from local parks, trails, streets, bus stops, etc., count them as you go, and give them to the event coordinator on 5 May who will ship them to TerraCycle Canada! Please join us to help clean-up Fredericton!
