Horrible on riverside

Have your say

What a shame that the area around the Riverside complex is so littered with cigarette butts. Workers from the nearby offices frequently use the pathways to gaze out onto the river whilst satisfying their habit. Unfortunately there are bins provided for smokers to extinguish and put their finished butts into but these seldom seem to be used. The floor is littered with discarded butts.

I wonder if these smokers use ashtrays at home or do they just stub their remains out on the carpets and floors at home. I think the firms around the riverside should take responsibility for this littering. It is a horrible sight for other people to witness.
