"LIVE LIFE CLEAN AND MAKE LAX KW'ALAAMS GREEN" - PLEASE.
This type of mess, found this morning at the Lax Kw'alaams Recreation Centre entrance, is usually reserved for after a big event - neither is excusable.
We ask all community members to take pride in their facilities and community in general and to NOT LITTER. There is a garbage can at the entrance. There are also buckets for smokers AROUND THE CORNER so, please, stop bringing the buckets under the shelter (and then tossing your butts on the walkway and parking lot, anyway) as your smoke gets into the vents and into the centre.
We thank you for your cooperation.

Ed E BryantI use to smoke and just flick my butts away, someone else´s problem or it goes back to the earth. I see it all over here and not just the butts, but plastic packaging, empty packages and butts, just tossed, it is really scary. Here are some interesting facts: Springtime means flowers, fresh air, babbling brooks, a blue sky and, all in all, a chance to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. But all of that beauty is at risk because of how cigarettes are damaging our environment. Researchers estimate that 1.7 billion pounds of cigarette butts accumulate in lakes and oceans and on beaches and the rest of the planet every year. Discarded cigarette butts and filters contain the same dangerous chemicals contained in a cigarette, including carcinogens and other poisons. It would be great if cigarette material would just disappear, biodegrade, or disintegrate and not harm the environment. No such luck. These leftovers latch on to our environment and will not let go. Simply put, they just do not biodegrade. Experts say cigarette butts rank at the very top of litter problems—not just because they are EVERYWHERE, but because they are toxic and nonbiodegradable3. They remain in sewers, beaches, soil, and bodies of water for years and even decades, and they eventually pollute our lakes and oceans, and of course, all the birds, fish, and mammals whose lives depend on those bodies of water. Pollution caused due to smoking is not confined only to the air or body but to some extent it is also responsible in polluting the land and the water. Every day millions of cigarette butts are left on the ground. Maximum of the cigarette butts finally end up in lakes and rivers. By mistake fishes and other water animals eat these butts resulting in death of these water bodies. The remaining butts left on the ground will approximately take 25-26 years to decompose. The various additives and chemicals are leached into the soil, polluting the soil as well as plants. Please keep your part of the earth clean, it means the world to the next generation.

Hazel Sankeylooks aweful....people should respect a public building even if it's outside looks terrible.......use the garbage can and the pail for butts.....5 days ago   ·  2
Brandi HaywardIt's the only rec centre I've ever seen with people or workers smoking outside! I think it's an awful display for the youth to see both the mess and the smoking. A no smoking while on the job/premise policy should be considered. Remember all adults in the community are role models for our future generations4 days ago   ·  3
Gwilhayakskit Gaax HurdellIf you make outlandish rules you may have less use as the community doesn't have much to offer in the first place, but it would be nice to find out who is leaving the awful mess and talk with them.4 days ago
