Butt Blitz Team Coordinator   Orillia  Oro-Medonte  Rama  Ramara  Severn 
A Greener Future

In 2015, we ran our first ever Butt Blitz — an action-oriented campaign focused on raising public awareness about cigarette litter, while simultaneously removing as much of it from the environment as possible.

Cigarette butts account for 1 in 5 pieces of litter that we find at our cleanups. These small cigarette butts are one of the most common forms of litter and when not disposed of properly, they cause negative impacts on local ecosystems and health.

Each spring, volunteers from across Canada pick up cigarette butts in their local communities, then send them to TerraCycle Canada for recycling. The social impact of this event is just as important as the environmental impact, as it helps prevent cigarette butt litter from ending up on the ground in the future!

We are looking for Butt Blitz Coordinators in communities across Canada to join us in expanding our impact by engaging volunteers locally throughout April!

As a Butt Blitz Coordinator, you are dedicating your time throughout April to help reduce the amount of cigarette litter in your local community and create a safer, healthier environment. You will help to spread awareness and connect others within your community to get involved in this initiative to reduce cigarette waste. 

All you need to participate is a pair of gloves, an up-cycled container (e.g., an old yogurt tub) to collect your butts in, and an interest in improving your local environment!

Coordinator Responsibilities:

  • Review and understand the Butt Blitz Coordinator Information package

  • Participate in cigarette litter cleanups to contribute to the overall goal of removing 1 million cigarette butts

  • Choose a central and easily accessible location for local volunteers to drop off their collected butts (e.g., your front porch)

  • Engage and support a team of local volunteers throughout April (e.g., answering questions, keeping in contact, hosting small group cleanups)

  •  Mail in the cigarette butt collection to TerraCycle for recycling (shipping label provided by A Greener Future)

  • Attend virtual team meetings via Google Meets (3 in total, max 30 minutes in length)

  • Complete weekly check-ins with A Greener Future staff (via email or virtual call)

  • Speak with the local media about the Butt Blitz should the possibility arrive

  • Sign a virtual Liability Waiver

Please note: The Butt Blitz is a 19+ event (18+ in Alberta and Quebec) because we are working with hazardous waste.

To apply for this opportunity, please complete the application below by Sunday, Feb. 25, 2024: https://form-can.keela.co/butt-blitz-spring-2024-coordinator-form

Selected candidates will be contacted for an interview to ensure that the role is a good fit and we’ll answer any questions you may have about the position.
