Sandringham Yacht Club - Windproof Ashtrays

Comprising a 340 berth floating marina, boating academy, waterfront support services, newly built clubhouse, reciprocal rights with yacht clubs worldwide and a 24 hour fuel dock, SYC offers Melbourne sailors an incomparable place to base their sailing lifestyle.

To help protect the environment, and Melbourne's Port Phillip Bay from cigarette butt litter, SYC has installed No BuTTs Eco-Pole Wall & Post-mounted Ashtrays around their property, including the Ken King Centre, located literally at the water's edge.  No BuTTs Windproof Ashtrays are also placed on all outdoor tables located on their club house balcony, overlooking Port Phillip Bay.

"Despite the fact that stainless steel is supposed to be rust proof, the reality is that our marine environment is very harsh. The previous wall-mounted ashtrays we had installed had tarnished and began to rust and corrode, and we also had problems with rubbish clogging them, so the completion of the new facilities was a great opportunity to upgrade our ashtrays." said Paul Gascoigne, Marina & Yard Manager at SYC."

"We really liked the polished stainless steel finish and also the 1-step / 5-second emptying process that No BuTTs Eco-Poles provide. And they are definately the best looking wall ashtrays we've seen."

Sandringham Yacht Club - Eco-Pole Wall & Post Ashtrays"As a boatie myself, and a regular visitor to SYC, I couldn't be more delighted that Sandringham Yacht Club have chosen No BuTTs Eco-Pole Ashtrays and Windproof Ashtrays for their wonderful new complex." said No BuTTs Managing Director Jack Jacobson.

"The Clean Marinas program is a wonderful initiative that addresses many of the environmental impacts that marine based facilities have to deal with such as recycling, spill prevention and waste removal. Sandringham Yacht Club takes this philosophy all the way down to the issue of the cigarette butt litter - as they should."

"Afterall, it makes no sense for marinas and yacht clubs to invest substantial resources to protect the environment commensurate with the Clean Marinas program but to ignore the issue of the cigarette butt litter created by their members, guests and business activities because we all know where any littered butts end up.

It's for these reasons that No BuTTs is working towards having the specific issue of cigarette butt litter reduction included in the Clean Marinas program."

"Sandi is known as having the best yacht club and marina facilities anywhere on Port Phillip Bay so we're very proud that they chose No BuTTs to assist them to reduce cigarette butt litter."

"As a participant in the Clean Marina program it's very refreshing to see a responsible and eco-friendly yacht club and marina that actually practices what it preaches."
