Over the past seven years, our cigarette

litter prevention plans have kept millions

of cigarette butts from entering our fragile

ecosystems. Now we can keep cigarette

waste out of landfills and generate energy

at the same time with our Butts To Watts   program.

We take cigarette litter to a waste to energy plant and place electricity back on the grid from something that is otherwise thrown away. Cigarette waste has a good BTU potential and is considered a "high yield"  material. With landfill airspace at a premium and the sheer volumes of cigarette waste generated each year, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has adopted Butts to Watts statewide for their safety roadside rest areas which receive over 44 million visitors each year.

Each year we throw away millions of pounds of cigarette waste, now we can use that waste for energy creation and achieve new sustainability goals while keeping cigarette waste out of the waters of America.

This is cigarette and cigar butts that were collected in the Butts Only Boxes in Carlsbad, CA. in one month. The amount of cigarette waste is staggering. 
Let's keep America's waterways beautiful, healthy, and free from these!

We are dedicated to one thing...

the reduction of cigarette and cigar waste.


Cigarette Pollution Solutions presents the Butts Only Box   line of outdoor cigarette and cigar receptacles.

Cigarette butts are the number one littered item in the world.
Our system of cigarette waste collection is scalable from one receptacle to an entire city. Our receptacles are most successful where people smoke most. Parks, beaches, rest areas and sporting events to name just a few. 

We need to protect our ecosystems and precious resources by preventing cigarette waste from entering storm drain systems, thus eliminating various toxins from entering our rivers, streams and ocean.

Our receptacles and service program have collected over 2 million cigarette butts so far. If you have a cigarette litter problem, we can help.
