Looking for an affordable solution for picking up cigarette butts and trash.
Anyone use hand held vacs for this?

A backpack style vacuum might be worth a look. Wouldn't be good for huge pieces of trash, but I'm sure it would save time with Cigarette endcaps and small pieces of whatnots.

There are a lot of different "grabber's". If you pick up litter outside, you need one of these.

those grabbers are essential for any LCO but I'm talking about parking lots with more area than what a grabber can do quickly. I figure a hand held vac would be ideal but haven't used any in a while and wanted to see if anyone has a brand that they like and is able to pick up butts and paper and not necessarily leaves.

The back pack models look promising but I never seen them available locally.
