The above YouTube video "Stormwater Pollution The Dirty Truth: Home Car Washing" comes from the Australian Car Wash Association

Recently the Alliance for the Great Lakes installed voting boxes for cigarette butt disposal on Chicago beaches because, even though smoking on at the beach is illegal, cigarette butts still make up 25% of the litter picked up. The voting boxes allow people to vote on a question like "Who is better at baseball the Cubs or the White Sox?" with their cigarette butts. It is a pretty cool idea and you can read more about it here or here.

If you are interested in recycling and composting your cigarette waste into useful products visit the Cigarette Waste Recycling Program at Terracycle.
