Stubbing out butts problem in Rasen


Cigarette butts are littering Market Rasen’s Market Place, complain town councillors.

Now, the council is to write to businesses around the Market Place requesting they fit cigarette butt receptacles.

Town Mayor John Matthews says West Lindsey District Council does a good job removing litter, but businesses should be encouraged to keep the front of their premises tidy.

“There’s plenty of litter bins but to throw a lighted cigarette into a bin is not the best idea in the world,” he commented after the meeting.
