New Bins for Smokers

Now that smokers have been driven out of the pubs and into the streets, these new bins have appeared recently in the Market Place.

This one has been attached to a bollard. There is even one on the side of the old tram shelter which appeared in my recent post Market Place.

Smokers can be fined £50 (or is it £80 now?) for dropping fag ends on the pavement. Will the presence of these bins result in cleaner streets? We shall see.

For a wider view of the location of this bin, see Hyde DP Xtra.

How nice to read and see something like this, as over here, people are still droping the remains to the ground, wherever they are, you might only imagine the scene on playgrounds ! and how many times I took it out of the hand of my small son.
A wonderful start into the weekend for you all.

It's rather attractive in a futuristic way, apart from the ash debris on top. But I guess that's inevitable. :(

Now if the bins really were for smokers and not just their waste, we'd be getting somewhere! ;-)

They could stop smoke, it for sure would be the right thing to do!
Okay...I know....
I hope it can help keeping the streets clean!
Have a nice weekend

Wonderful idea. I love when they toss them out the window and they hit my windshield. I'd love to see these installed in our city.
