Cigarette Task Force

Keep Las Vegas Beautiful is currently establishing a task force for an effective Cigarette Litter Prevention Program in our community.  Our CLPP Task Force will consist of elected government officials, department directors and employees, civic leaders, media representatives, business/ property owners and community individuals.

CLPP Task Force volunteers will help execute the cigarette prevention program locally, review litter ordinances, survey areas  in need of ash receptacles, check and maintain the receptacles twice a month or more if needed, distribute portable pocket and/or auto ashtrays to adult smokers and provide input for surveys and/ or scans.

We are inviting you to join us in raising awareness about the cigarette litter and prevention.  A few hours a month of your time can provide a huge impact in our community.

If you are interested or know someone interested in joining our CLPP Task Force, please email or call (505) 426-3254.
