Butt Out Butt In Clean Up Effort

Volunteers Needed: Butt Out Butt In Clean Up Effort
September 23rd, 10am-12pm

Wildsight Kimberley/Cranbrook would like to invite you to take part in the Cranbrook City-Wide Cigarette Butt Clean Up on Wednesday September 23rd. We will be rallying at the bandstand in Rotary Park Downtown (near the Cranbrook Farmers' Market location) at 10am, dividing collection bags and rubber gloves and setting off to clean up the park.
At the end pf the day, all the bags will be combined and taken to the big tent in front of the former Target store for weighing. All the collected butts will be sent to Terracycle, a company that uses the cellulose in the butts to create park benches, flowerpots, and other useful products.
If you would like to join the effort, please contact Andrea Chapman at or 250-427-9325 x221. If you would like to take part in the effort on your own schedule, please stop by the Tamarack Centre office or Wildsight office to pick up collection bags and gloves.
