COLLECT: Continue to use your regular ashtray. Empty your ashtray into a bag or box when full – making sure that all the waste is safely extinguished. And don’t forget to spread the word to friends, family and colleagues too!
PACK: Put all the cigarette waste that you have collected in a plastic bag, making sure it is properly sealed. Box up the bag and download your free shipping label through your profile on terracycle.co.uk.
SHIP: Attach your free shipping label to the box and order a pick-up via UPS by calling 03457 877 877 or book a collection online here, and UPS will collect at your location. It really is that easy!
Collecting and sorting: Cigarette filters are sent to TerraCycle’s local warehouses in liner bags. TerraCycle will check-in and handle the collected containers.
Separating components: Any remaining tobacco or paper will be recycled as compost – nothing will go to landfill. Organics (ash, tobacco, paper) are separated from plastic components (filters) using specific screens.
Washing: Filters are bagged up and transported to a wash plant where they will be removed from any kind of contamination.
Transformation into new products : The filters are then shredded and mixed with other recycled materials. They can be used as a compound to make sheet boards or be densified and extruded into pellets. This plastic can then be used for injection moulding or extrusion.

Naples Florida made a similar broadcast back in the 80s or 90s ?
Now I tear the paper/fire off the cigarette butt then but in my back pocket till I get close to a trashcan .
I'm not sure how many people will save and mail their cigarette waste.
