GREEN BAY -- The City of Green Bay is taking part in a national program for the second year in a row to make the area a little cleaner.
The Keep American Beautiful Program aims to prevent cigarette butt litter across the country. Ans right here in Green Bay, it's focused on downtown. This year, they're taking a different approach than in the past.
"We will be installing additional ash receptacles throughout the downtown area, we're installing seven new ones. We'll also be handing out pocket ash trays for patrons to use," says Crystal Osman, the program manager with Downtown Green Bay, Inc.
This year's campaign will focus on several blocks along both Washington and Adams streets.
