Restaurants should help with our problem butts | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

It is time for the restaurants of Bainbridge Island to provide containers in which smokers can dispose of their butts. I walk Winslow every day with my dog and picking up litter and the cigarette butts are out of control.

Do me and your community a service and provide a safe place to dispose of this waste. Too often I see the remains of tobacco-laden butts in our ditches and storm drains leaching nicotine into our environment.
