According to cigarettelitter.org, cigarette butts are the most littered item in America. The fact that cigarette butts are not biodegradable makes this potentially a huge problem for facilities. Cigarette butts can also be harmful to wildlife, as the butts are often mistaken for food!
What can you do about it? Make sure your facility has a proper way to dispose of cigarette butts. A typical trash can isn’t enough, you want to make sure you have a proper smoking receptacle in the proper areas. Not only will this make your facility cleaner, but it will also help the environment!
