GRAND TRAVERSE BAY (AP) – Some community college students say beach-goers should see fewer cigarette butts in the sand next summer, thanks to their cleanup project.

Six members of a Project Management class at Northwestern Michigan College came up with the idea of installing five decorative trash containers at Keith Charters Traverse City State Park beach.

It’s on Grand Traverse Bay in Grand Traverse County’s East Bay Township.

The beach hasn’t had trash cans for several years.

The state Department of Natural Resources agreed to empty the new trash cans.
