[ARCHIVED] Cigarette Waste Receptacle Grant

Cig Recp March 2023 Newflash

Why install a cigarette waste receptacle?

Cigarette butts are the most littered item in America and across the world. When smokers leave cigarette butts on the ground, it creates an unsightly mess that damages your business’s curb appeal and contributes to community litter and water pollution. Furthermore, littered cigarette butts can also cause damage to property and landscaping by starting accidental fires.

Forty-one percent of smokers have reported they lack access to receptacles at their place of employment. Adding cigarette waste receptacles where smokers congregate or at transition points (where customers would extinguish their cigarettes before entering the building) can meaningfully reduce cigarette litter and encourage smokers to do the right thing.

Clean communities aren’t just good for the environment, they’re good for business! Join the #NoButtsAboutIt cigarette litter prevention initiative by applying for a free cigarette waste receptacle and/or use our outreach toolkit below to show your commitment to cleaner, greener communities.
