Cigarette Butt Recycling Program

Our city streets and communities are littered with cigarette butts. They are another form of waste in our society that could be collected, recycled or composted.

 

My idea is to create a cigarette butt recycling program that would encourage citizen to collect and recycle cigarette butts. Terracycle in Toronto already has a program to address this issue, but I think too few people know about it or are willing to ship and mail the butts. https://www.terracycle.ca/en-CA/brigades/cigarette-waste-brigade

 

It would be great to see the City create centers or programs to encourage the collection and recycling of cigarette butts to keep our streets and communities clean and to recycle and compost this form of waste.
