Cigarette Litter Prevention Program

This program is designed to support local community improvement initiatives for reducing cigarette butt litter. We provides easily accessible information and educational tools, as well as ash receptacles and distribution of pocket ashtrays or portable ashtrays.


Our effective local Cigarette Litter Prevention Program includes four proven, field-tested solutions or strategies for reducing cigarette butt litter:

  • Encourage enforcement of litter laws, including cigarette litter;​

  • Raise awareness about the issue using service messages;

  • Place ash receptacles at transition points such as entrances to public buildings; and

  • Distribute pocket or portable ashtrays to adult smokers.
