70,000 Cigarette Butts Collected in Campaign

6th June 2019

More than 70,000 cigarette butts were collected over the weekend in a Pick it Up Guernsey initiative. They were used in environmental messages outside the Tourist Information Centre on Saturday.

The butts were collected by islanders and volunteers across the Bailiwick over three days, with 2,000 alone collected by the charity’s founder Andrew Munro.

Andrew and Pick It Up Guernsey have now set up a drop off point at Longue Hougue where islanders can take their butts to be recycled.
