New campaign to raise awareness about Cigarette Litter in Dublin City

Dublin City Council has rolled out a new public awareness campaign titled 'Bin the Butt' to raise awareness about the ongoing issue of cigarette litter in the city.

The aim of the City Council's new campaign is to raise awareness among smokers that cigarette butts are litter and there is a significant issue with this type of litter in the city.  It is hoped that the campaign will heighten awareness about the issue and it will change smokers' behaviour towards how they dispose of cigarette butts.  

Results from the 2016 National Litter Pollution Monitoring System show that cigarette butts account for nearly 60% of all the street litter in Dublin city.
