YPSILANTI, Mich. (WXYZ) — Some smokers in metro Detroit will soon have the option of recycling their cigarette butts.
A dozen of disposal containers for butts will pop-up in downtown Ypsilanti in the coming weeks.
The containers have a bag installed in them. Once the bag is filled, the city will ship it to a warehouse.
The cigarette butts will then be recycled into usable material for new products like park benches.
