Keep your eye out for these characters who can be found in the Town Centres of Guildford West, Wentworthville and Pendle Hill over the coming weeks spreading the word about the harm cigarette butt litter can do and collecting as many butts as they can.
Cigarette butt litter is the world's greatest environmental litter problem. Globally, approximately 4.5 trillion cigarette butts are littered every year. In NSW smokers throw away enough butts to fill 7
Olympic swimming pools. It can take up to 12 years for a cigarette butt to break down.
Chalk art can be found around the Council area reminding everyone to dispose of cigarettes the proper way.
