Mayor Faulconer joins cigarette litter clean up

Mayor Kevin Faulconer lends a helping hand Sunday morning in the Surfrider Foundation's campaign to kick cigarette litter's butt in Ocean Beach.

OCEAN BEACH (CBS 8) - Mayor Kevin Faulconer lends a helping hand Sunday morning in the Surfrider Foundation's campaign to kick cigarette litter's butt in Ocean Beach. 

Faulconer joined other volunteers as they scattered around the Ocean Beach business district picking up discarded cigarette butts, refurbishing existing ash cans and distributing 30 new ones.

The Surfrider Foundation says about 40 percent of what's collected during beach clean-ups are cigarette butts which are harmful to wildlife and not bio-degradable.
