Capitol Hill Business Improvement District (BID) has installed Ashguard™ cigarette waste containers near bars and restaurants in Capitol Hill, on the famous Pennsylvania Avenue SE and along Barracks Row.
Ashguard waste containers have a one gallon tank which can hold hundreds of cigarette butts. The Capitol Hill BID purchased these containers with grant money from the Keep America Beautiful Cigarette Litter Prevention Program.
"It just seemed like those units would make the most sense because they target high-smoking areas." BID spokeswoman Kelly Maslar said. Previous cigarette litter prevention schemes have seen an estimated 38% decrease in cigarette litter around Capitol Hill.
