Pretty soon, you will see two new Sidewalk Buttlers in the West End. The locations are still to be determined, but we are excited to have a means for smokers to dispose of their cigarette butts other than on the sidewalks and streets of our neighborhood.
If these Buttlers are successful, we plan to purchase more in the future.
Here is a description from the Sidewalk Buttler’s webpsite:
The Sidewalk Buttler solution to cigarette waste was designed with a fresh view – to make it easy for communities and businesses to keep butts off the ground and out of the water by providing an alternative disposal system. Cigarettes butts are not just disposed of in a landfill either, they are upcycled into other products including park benches and sunglasses.
Below is a mock-up of WENA’s graphic for the new Buttlers.
