Enfield House of Pizza

EHOP spends several hours a couple times a year collecting cigarette butts from the parking lot. Instead of these cigarette butts going into the trash, they will be recycled through TerraCycle in the future. EHOP will not be collecting cigarette butts from the general public and we encourage smokers to dispose of their cigarette butts responsibly in the provided receptacles instead of on the ground. The Enfield Energy Committee wants to thank them for their commitment to sustainability for recycling cigarette butts.
