Lorain County kicks butt beginning April 20th

The Lorain County Board of Commissioners and the Lorain County Solid Waste Management District are kicking off a program to help alleviate cigarette waste in Lorain County in a campaign called: “Lorain County Kicks Butt.” 

According to Dan Billman, Lorain County Solid Waste Director, cigarette butts are the number one most littered item and in an effort to combat this serious problem, the Lorain County Solid Waste Management District will be providing an alternative to littering with cigarette butts. 

The solid waste office has chosen Thursday, April 20th as the day for the kick-off event, to coincide with Earth Day activities going on the following weekend. 

Speakers for the event include: the Lorain County Commissioners, U.S. Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, and representatives from the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. 

The Kick-Butt event will take place from 5:00pm – 7:00PM at Lorain County Community College’s Spitzer Conference Center, located at 1005 North Abbe Rd., in Elyria.  Those in attendance will be provided with a free portable ashtray and literature. 

For additional questions or comments, contact Dan Billman, Lorain County Solid Waste Director, at (440) 329-5442.
