Smokers told to stop throwing cigarette butts on ground

CIGARETTE smokers in Henley have been told to stop throwing their butts on the ground.

Kellie Hinton, who chairs the Henley in Bloom committee, hit out after the annual Hit Litter day in which volunteers helped clean the streets.

She said discarded cigarette butts, which cannot be recycled, were a particular problem.

“We need to get people to stub their cigarettes out and then throw them away in bins,” said Councillor Hinton.

“Litter-picks are making things better in the short term but something needs to be done to stop the problem altogether. It’s something we need to tackle as a town.
