No ifs, no butts is the message of a new campaign targeting smokers in the borough.

The campaign, run by Elmbridge Council, makes it possible for people to report drivers who are seen throwing cigarette butts from their cars through a new online system.

Disposing of cigarette butts and other litter from a vehicle window is an offence the new scheme could result in offenders being handed a fine of £75.

Councillor Glenn Dearlove, portfolio holder for the environment, said: “Nobody wants to see litter on our streets.

“The council spends a huge amount of time and resources picking up cigarette butts and so it’s really important we deter people from doing it.”

To report a littering offence, visit elmbridge.gov.uk/litter and enter the vehicle details and registration number.
