Seeing fewer unsightly butts in the District? TerraCycles are to thank. Learn more about the Downtown SF Partnership's cigarette recycling program.
The Downtown SF Partnership installed TerraCycles throughout the District during the summer of 2021. These collection containers are part of a recycling program, allowing cigarette waste to be converted into a variety of industrial products, such as plastic pallets, and any remaining tobacco to be converted into compost. Not only is this an environmentally sustainable effort, but it keeps cigarette butts off the Districts streets and sidewalks, too!
