Cigarette Litter Prevention Program

Join us in the fight to eradicate cigarette butt litter by encouraging your friends and family members to properly dispose of their cigarette waste!

Did you know?

  • Cigarettes take up to a decade to biodegrade

  • Toxins from cigarette litter contaminate groundwater

  • Cigarette litter is harmful to wildlife

  • Cigarette butts are the most littered item in the world

  • Cities spend millions cleaning up cigarette litter

We want to partner with you!

OKC Beautiful partners with organizations across Oklahoma City to prevent cigarette litter. We provide receptacles - you collect and send the cigarette waste to Terracycle. These materials are repurposed into a hard plastic made into industrial products, like benches and plastic pallets. 

Current Partners:

  • Downtown OKC

  • Midtown OKC

  • Plaza District

  • West Village

  • Riversport OKC

  • OKC Farmers Market District

  • Homeless Alliance

  • Neighborhood Services Organization

If you are interested in partnering, contact Lauren Nixon at 405.525.8822.
