I see SKDC is throwing our money away, with the installation of a ballot bin for cigarette ends – the most common form of litter in the district.
They reckon encouraging smokers to have a bit of fun while also getting rid of their cigarette butts in an environmentally friendly way will reduce the amount of smoking-related litter.
On these bins, smokers vote by putting their cigarette end in the slot beneath their preferred answer.
The litter stacks up behind the clear glass front in two columns, showing which answer is more popular.
So the council thinks its a good idea for them to gamble as well.
These people should be banned from all public places – including the streets of our towns.
They should take a leaf out of Japan’s book – as I saw on a recent visit – where every 10th slab carries a message
