Did you know that most cigarette butts are plastic??


Cigarette butts contain cellulose acetate, a type of plastic that takes many years to break down in the environment. So don't flick that butt on the ground!!!  Put your butt here and help keep Lake Superior plastic free!




Cigarette waste disposed of in these specially marked ashtrays throughout Thunder Bay is collected and the plastic is recycled through Terracycle into a variety of industrial products, such as plastic pallets, and any remaining tobacco is recycled as compost.




Since our program launched in 2015, we have recycled ....


1,760,635 BUTTS


Are you a business and want to participate in the program?  You might qualify for a subsidzed ashtray for your location!
