RoncyWorks Pilots New Public Ashcans

Get Your Butt In Here!

Get Your Butt In Here!

RoncyWorks, our tireless group of volunteers, maintains our street gardens through the RoncyWorks Green Team and helps to keep Roncesvalles Avenue beautiful.

One of the biggest challenges RoncyWorks has had to deal with is cigarette litter. Cigarette butts end up in our gardens, in our gutters, on our sidewalks and more. Around the world cigarette litter is proving to be one of the biggest litter problems that communities face.

RoncyWorks and the Roncesvalles Village BIA are piloting a public ashcan program. In many locations on Roncesvalles Avenue you can find these ashcans, provided at no cost by Keep America Beautiful. Please make good use of them, as well as the ashtrays that you will find on every public garbage can. Get your butts in there, and help to keep Roncesvalles Village beautiful.

The Roncesvalles Village BIA thanks the entire RoncyWorks team, with special thanks to project leader Veronica Feihl, Bronwen Evans from Keep America Beautiful, and Philip Homerski from Keep Hamilton Green and Green.
