Macquarie University is the latest EDU to install No BuTTs Eco-Pole AshtraysMacquarie University, one of Australia's leading research EDUs is installing a fleet of No BuTTs Eco-Pole Freestanding Bollard Ashtrays as part of their efforts to reduce cigarette butt litter around campus.

Located in North Ryde, Sydney, Macquarie University is recognised as one of the most beautiful and environmentally friendly campuses in Australia, and has won numerous awards for their environmental initiatives.

Building Projects Manager at M.U. Gary Fagen confirmed their order earlier this month and the Eco-Pole Ashtrays are currently being installed at designated smoking zones around campus.

Eco-Pole Freestanding Bollard Ashtray
"The thing we really liked about the Eco-Pole Ashtrays is that they have cigarette butt only entry points which eliminates the problem of ashtrays being clogged with papers and other waste. Smokers can't use an ashtray if it's full of rubbish and this defeats the purpose of installing ashtrays in the first place." said Mr Fagen.

The only kind of butts you'll see around Macquarie University!Eco-Pole Ashtrays are available in either Wall & Post Mounted Ashtrays or Freestanding Bollard Ashtrays which can be permanently mounted, or used in portable mode by way of the Eco-Pole doughnut weight bags which provide a safe and stable way to place Eco-Pole Freestanding Bollard Ashtrays when and where they are needed.

Over 100 Universities, Colleges, Techs & EDUs around Australia, including La Trobe University, NSW TAFE, University of Queensland and James Cook University are now using Eco-Pole Ashtrays at Designated Smoking Zones to reduce and often virtually eliminate cigarette butt litter around their locations. Over 75 EDUs also distrubute No BuTTs Mini-Butts Personal Ashtrays to Students, Faculty and Staff so that they can do the right thing with their butts anywhere and anytime they smoke.
