A trial ban on smoking will be imposed at two Pennsylvania state parks next year in response to complaints about litter.
The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources says park visitors are complaining about cigarette butts discarded in lakes and on beaches. Maintenance workers end up spending a lot of time collecting butts, especially ones from filtered cigarettes which take longer to biodegrade.
Officials have not said yet which of the state's 120 parks will have the experimental smoking ban.
