Cigarette Bins & Ashtrays
In the UK It is considered an offence to drop your cigarette litter in public which could lead to you possibly going to court and an on the spot fine of up to £1000.
Cigarette butts are a unique type of litter – small, smelly, on fire and sadly very commonly found on the ground. Even smokers don’t like them much, and together these little butts add up to a very big problem.
Why do you need Cigarette Bins?
Cigarette litter is the number one littered item in the country accounting for more than 70% of streets being affected by smoking litter, with busy spots like high streets or transport hubs having even more of a problem. To tackle this on going issue the Keep Britain Tidy innovation team are targeting hot spots with intervention Smoking Zones and the new Bin the Butt campaign.
When smokers emerge from a long train journey, a busy shopping centre or an office, many want to start smoking quickly. But without well-designed facilities for smokers or disposal units, these areas can become littered with butts.
However in contrast, well equipped smoking shelters and areas have seen litter be reduced by up to 89%.
The team will organise and lead a smoking litter forum including the tobacco industry, Government local authorities and others, working together to develop effective solutions. Also working with Defra to develop an awareness campaign to challenge smokers’ attitudes.
