Working with our communities to keep our kids and parks free from cigarette litter, smoke, and tobacco.

Tobacco-Free Parks and Recreation

  • Reduce exposure to secondhand smoke.

  • Insure a healthy environment for sports, recreation and other outdoor activities.

  • Reduce cigarette litter. Cigarettes are the most littered item in the country. Cigarette butts are not biodegradable and contain toxins that are harmful to all living things.

How can we help!

The Tobacco Free Zone of Cortland, Tompkins and Chenango Counties is a resource for towns, villages, organizations, and businesses that want to create tobacco-free outdoor spaces.

We can provide:

  • Educational materials

  • Sample policies

  • Custom Signage
