Tidy Town - Keep Australia Beautiful awardRutherglen Town, situated approx 300 kms North East
of Melbourne, having recently 'cleaned up' at the Keep Australia Beautiful awards for Victoria's Tidiest Town is installing Eco-Pole Wall & Post-mounted Ashtrays.

In conjunction with No BuTTs and Butt Free Australia, Rutherglen Town Management will be installing a fleet of Eco-Pole Ashtrays in Main Street and at other locations around town to reduce cigarette butt litter within their beautiful location. 

 Rutherglen is the Victorian winner of the Tidy Towns 2010 award
Rutherglen is the agricultural and viticultural centre of Australia's oldest wine growing region, located near the banks of the mighty Murray River. This old gold rush township established in the 1850's has worked to preserve it's features to allow travellers an opportunity to see a town with an old feel, but still having modern conveniences of a tourist destination.

The Rutherglen wine region is the premier fortified wine producing area in Australia, with winemaker's passing on their knowledge through up to five generations. The growth of the area has seen Rutherglen become the home of many boutique wineries.

"We are delighted that the winner of Victoria's Tidiest Town has selected No BuTTs Eco-Pole Wall & Post-Mounted Ashtrays to augment their ongoing efforts to keep Rutherglen beautiful." said No BuTTs Managing Director, Jack Jacobson. 

It's not hard to see why Eco-Pole Ashtrays are now the world's best selling Wall & Post-mounted Ashtrays."Eco-Pole Ashtrays not only look great they are also the easiest wall and post ashtrays to empty with a one step process that takes around five seconds," said Jack. "and that's why well over 500 government departments, national parks and tourist destinations across Australia and New Zealand are now using or have switched to No BuTTs Eco-Pole Wall & Post-mounted Ashtrays. There's nothing else like them."

With the whole town supporting their ongoing environmental initiatives, Town Management will team with local businesses to install and maintain their Eco-Pole Ashtrays.

"The spirit of cooperation between town management and local businesses is a great example for all other communities to follow, and it makes total sense for all involved to share responsibility for butt litter reduction." said Jack. "And with No BuTTs Eco-Pole Ashtrays it's economical, it's effective and it's easy." 

Rutherglen is one of Australia's leading winery areas
"Apart from the environmental benefits of eliminating cigarette butt litter and the consequencial improvement in the appearance of their locations, that fact is that it also takes much less time to empty an Eco-Pole Ashtray than it does to have to sweep up or collect the littered butts outside their premises - and business owners and managers understand this perfectly." said Jack.

More Councils, Shires and Towns Management every week are getting together with their local traders to install No BuTTs Eco-Pole Ashtrays in a partnership where Civic Management supplies and installs the Eco-Pole Ashtrays and the businesses where they are installed empty them as required.  That's good for all and great for the environment.
