Don't toss butts out the window on Egan

Posted: Wednesday, March 24, 2004

To the woman driving her light brown GMC 4x4 pick-up truck with step sides on Egan Drive to town at about 7:45 Friday morning: I can certainly understand why you wouldn't want to dirty the inside of your nice looking truck with your cigarette butts.

However, throwing them out the window is not an acceptable alternative. You may not be aware, but cigarette butts are litter too and although small, take years to disintegrate. It was discouraging to me, on such a beautiful Juneau morning, to watch you disregard our incredible surroundings.

I thank you in advance for your future proper disposal of your garbage.
