Guide to Cigarette Litter Prevention Using Cigarette Receptacles

Cigarette litter is a serious challenge for communities across the U.S. Individuals who would never litter beverage cans or paper packaging typically do not consider tossing cigarette butts on the ground littering.

Dropping partially-smoked cigarettes, cigarette butts, matches, lighters, and packaging to the ground, however, is littering. Lack of awareness, lack of cigarette receptacles, and the increase of smoking outdoors all contribute to the growing amount of cigarette litter. Cigarette receptacles, butt cans and smoking urns are a necessary part to any cigarette litter prevention program.

Keep America Beautiful, the nation's largest nonprofit community improvement organization, has developed the Guide to Cigarette Litter Prevention, to combat this problem. In the Guide, Keep America Beautiful shares knowledge, solutions and tools that government, businesses or individuals can put to use to reduce cigarette litter in their communities.

Cigarette Receptacles come in all shapes, different materials and sizes. Metal Butt Cans have been around for quite some time. There are stylish cigarette receptacle now available to match any type of decor or theme. Smoking urns have been a traditional look in many business and commercial environments.
