Junkies aren’t the only ones leaving their drug paraphenalia around the place, we all see beer bottles hither and yon, and many nicotine addicts are inconsiderate in disposing of the butts.
I don’t know how we missed it, but John Hargreaves is on the job. A few days ago he put out a media release (obviously the headline was written by a recent journalism graduate) warning us:
â€œA team of brightly dressed young people will this week be approaching smokers in the cityâ€™s â€˜butt hot spotsâ€™ to discuss the environmental impact of littered butts, provide information on disposal options and generally encourage correct disposal,â€
Have any of our smokers met these brightly dressed young people? How did the discussion go?
And why not just have rangers hitting offenders with a fine?
