Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 16 2008
16 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, July 17, 2008 SAVING THE PLANET www.innerwestweekly.com.au Flipping good idea Burwood Mayor John Faker and council officers Andrew Love and Leanne Nicholls display the ashtrays. BURWOOD Council has followed Ashfield Council in launching a campaign to reduce the number of cigarette butts discarded in our streets by providing free ashtrays for smokers. Mayor John Faker is behind the environmental campaign, encour- aging smokers to pick up their own portable ashtray from the council's customer services desk. ''Having our streets littered with cigarette butts is not only detrimental to the environment, but it is also unsightly and unhygienic,'' Mr Faker said. ''Council is offering smokers a free and simple alternative to dropping dead cigarettes in the street and I invite all smokers into Council to pick one up,'' he said. The ashtrays are pocket-sized replicas of household recycling bins, complete with a flip-top lid. For details phone Burwood Council on 9911 9911.
