Ashcatchers™ - The stylish way to create your own butt free zone

Welcome to the world of the Ashcatcher™, a unique gum and cigarette bin developed expressly for the safe disposal of chewed gum and cigarette butts.

The outer casing and hinged door of the Smartstreets' gum and cigarette Ashcatcher is cast from recycled aluminium and can be powder coated in a choice of colours. All the components are made of weatherproof stainless steel, making it a gum and cigarette bin built to last.

The Ashcatcher chewing gum and cigarette bin clamps around most posts - this includes lamp posts, traffic lights and pedestrian crossing beacon poles. It can also be fitted to bollards, walls or other flat surfaces.

At the heart of the Ashcatcher™ chewing gum and cigarette bin is a unique, removable, fire resistant liner made of inert stainless steel with exceptional non-stick qualities.

All the operator has to do is unlock the door, using an industry standard key, and empty the gum and cigarette litter out of the liner by simply inverting it with one hand. An easy, quick and clean operation.
