New cigarette bin on the High Street

| | ,

A special new cigarette bin has been installed in Marlow High Street to encourage smokers to bin their butts rather than litter the pavements. Smokers can stub their cigarettes out on top and safely dispose of the stubs in the bin, which takes ordinary litter as well.

The bin is located between the High Street benches, and is there thanks to Marlow Town Council, Buckinghamshire Council and the Marlow Wombles (in our main photo).

It is being trialled for six weeks, and if it is a success more will be installed.

Deputy Mayor Jocelyn Towns said: “We hope to see a decrease in butts on the ground in the town centre. Smokers often say they don’t want to put their cigarette butts in the bin in case they set fire to it, so this bin has been designed to solve that problem.”

Marlow Town Council has paid for the bin from former Town Councillor Suzanne Brown’s ward budget.
