Glasdon Cigarette Bins Are Keeping America Beautiful

Keep America Beautiful is the largest community improvement organization in the United States. Founded in 1953, KAB has more than 600 affiliates around the country, working with their local communities to prevent trash, 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 trash. The organization's Cigarette Litter Prevention Program provides funding for local affiliates, downtown associations and business improvement districts to place ash receptacles at appropriate locations and to educate the public on the cigarette trash issue.

Glasdon, Inc. have provided cigarette units to a number of cities, with Ashmount SG™ Cigarette Unit 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 Unit can be found in cities like historic Stamford, Connecticut and the bustling state capital of California, Sacramento.
