A 1999 BCC publication included with the Rates Notice listed the 10 most found items of litter in our Moreton Bay. Plastic bags were number 1 (one) and cigarette butts were number 2 (two).

The Brisbane City Council has clamped down on dog owners but not smokers. Why? Is it that too many political supporters smoke? Does the Brisbane City Council need public support for such action? Maybe this page will supply that support.

E-mail the Brisbane City Council Lord Mayor and add your support for on the spot litter fines for smokers who litter our streets and waterways.

Send the Lord Mayor of Brisbane an e-mail now. Show you support on the spot litter fines for polluters especially smokers.
