How Many Years Will a Cigarette Butt Stay on the Street?

5-25 years is how long a cigarette but will take to decompose according to US Forest service Back Country and Wilderness Challenge Quiz.

Many believe that cigarette butts being made out of paper will biodegrade quickly. However, they contain a lot of synthetic material.  In flicking your butt instead of disposing of it properly you are unintentionally littering our city streets for at least 5 years.

To find out how many PA people are killed by drunk drivers every year locate the QR code near a bottle!
