Attention Midtown Business Owners:

If you do not have a receptacle for cigarette butts on the exterior of your business and you're interested in purchasing one at vendor pricing, contact us.

Not only are they unsightly, but littered cigarette butts contain plastic fibers and leach toxic chemicals—such as arsenic and lead, to name a few—into the environment and can contaminate water. 

For more information on the impact of littering, go here.
