Glasdon Cigarette Bins Are Keeping America Beautiful

Keep America Beautiful is the largest community improvement organisation in the United States. Founded in 1953, KAB has more than 600 affiliates around the country, working with their local communities to prevent litter, increase recycling and beautify their areas.

There are more than 40 million smokers in America, and cigarette butts are the most frequently littered item - KAB estimates 65% of cigarettes smoked outside become litter. The organisation's Cigarette Litter Prevention Program provides funding for local affiliates, downtown associations and business improvement districts to place smoking control units at appropriate locations and to educate the public on the cigarette litter issue.

Glasdon UK's sister company, Glasdon, Inc., has provided smoking control units to a number of cities, with Ashmount SG® Cigarette Bins proving the most popular. In areas where Glasdon products have been installed, local KAB affiliates have reported an average reduction in cigarette related litter of 45%.

Ashmount SG Cigarette Bins can be found in cities like historic Stamford, Connecticut and bustling Sacramento - the state capital of California.
