Cigarette Litter

Ronaldo versus Messi? Continuous assessment versus exams ?

As part of Health and Sports Week 2016, Healthy Trinity: Smoking Policy Group would like your help deciding what burning issues we should highlight on new cigarette bins like these that will be installed on campus later in the term.  We’re installing them to encourage people to dispose of their cigarette butts properly.  So far we’ve come up with Tea v Coffee; Rugby v Soccer; Front of College v Back of College. As you can read, we need your help. The person who comes up with the best idea will win a Trinity Ball Ticket.  To submit your idea, email with the subject line Bin Cigarette Butts before the 7th of March.




As you can see from this picture taken in July 2015, cigarette litter is a problem on the cricket pitch and is commonly referred to as a "scourge" by the groundskeeping staff. We hope this idea will highlight the issue.
