“Cigarettes are one of the most commonly found pieces of litter at Lake Tahoe,” the League to Save Lake Tahoe Chief Strategy Officer Jesse Patterson said.
One law that should have a significant on Lake Tahoe is Senate Bill 8, a law that bans cigarettes, cigars or other tobacco products at California beaches.
Every 5th of July, the League to Save Lake Tahoe and other volunteers clean up some of the more popular beaches. In 2019, 5,458 cigarette butts were collected.
