Local PSA

The weather, ah, she is lovely! I want to stroll about the fair city, visit with friends al fresco, enjoy a meal at an outside table...

With the cooperation of downtown businesses, Keep Winston-Salem Beautiful has placed cigarette butt receptacles along Fourth and Trade streets as part of a new campaign to fight cigarette litter.

Receptacles for cigarette butts have been placed on Fourth Street at Foothills Brewing, Separk Music, Noma, Mellow Mushroom, Rana Loca, and the Nissen Building; and on Trade Street at The Other Half Gallery, Chelsee's, Sweet Potatoes, the Winston-Salem Urban League, Finnigan's Wake, the Silver Moon Saloon, Elliott's Revue, and the Bubbling Well. Additional locations may be added.

In addition, Keep Winston-Salem Beautiful has a supply of sturdy re-useable pocket ashtrays with a metal liner and a sliding cover that snaps shut. The pocket ashtrays are available by calling CityLink at 727-8000.

The campaign is being financed through a $5,000 grant from Keep America Beautiful.
