ACR+ member Rezero presents the report “Cigarette butts. Impacts and opportunities from an environmental, economic and regulatory perspective” that describes the environmental and economic impacts generated by cigarette waste and presents various technical, economic and legal measures that could be implemented in Catalonia to reduce the impacts of this waste stream, such as Extended Producer Responsibility systems.

Currently, public administrations are entirely in charge of the collection of cigarette butts and their management and it is estimated that in Catalan municipalities the costs of road cleaning of cigarette butts can range between EUR 12-21 per inhabitant/year, being higher in coastal municipalities.
