Smoking Recepticle
Did you know? During the fall DNREC Coastal Cleanups of 2011 and 2012, Fenwick Island volunteers picked up 699 cigarette butts and 125 cigar tips.  In 2013 the DNREC Coastal Cleanup collected 1675 butts from the cigarette receptacles at the beach entrances and in the parks.  In 2014 the number collected was 1557.  So in 2013 and 2014 more than 3,000 cigarette and cigar butts were kept off Fenwick Island Beach.

It takes an average of 25 years for a cigarette to decompose.  More information is available at the American Lung Association.

The Delaware Health Fund and the American Lung Association in Delaware have helped to make this information program possible.
