The first town in New Jersey to embrace this recycling initiative, these containers not only keep the sidewalks, streets and storm sewers cleaner of cigarette butts, but they also enable new recycled products to be made and provide a $1 per pound back to the Town of Westfield. Terracycle through the Santa Fe Natural Tobacco company provides this funding as part of the keep America Beautiful Cigarette Litter Prevention Program.

You may have noticed the DPW crews doing a fantastic job maintaining and beautifying many areas around town. Thank you Craig, Larry, Vinny, Rock and Jared for all you do!
