BUTT..what can I can do?
You can make a difference by disposing of your butts properly. In participating beaches, like Wasaga Beach 5, find these disposable ashtrays and deposit the contents of the ashtrays in these receptacles so the butts can be recycled – and more importantly stay off the beach! If you can't find these tools, the important thing to remember is not to leave your BUTTS on the beach. Or anywhere on the ground. Your beaches from Wasaga Beach to the world, need to be cigarette BUTT-FREE!

Brian Nabuurs. Making a difference!Brian has volunteered dozens of hours to reduce litter on Wasaga Beach. Thanks Brian for your inspiring volunteerism to help our communities and the environment! Join Brian in helping to make beaches BUTT-FREE!"This has been a very positive experience from the very beginning. My inspiration originally came from Karen Alexander at LHCC (Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation). I thought it truly needed to be in Wasaga. I felt that if we wanted more people to take part in the initiative, it needed to be on a grander stage. Wasaga Beach is the perfect spring board to bring national attention to the issue and develop a template for this initiative for each community to duplicate."
