Can You Compost Cigarette Butts?

Cigarette Butt Compost

No, cigarette butts should not be added to a compost heap. Cigarette wastes are full of toxic, carcinogenic chemicals that won’t do you any good.

A better idea is to reach out to recycling programs in your area that specialize in difficult-to-recycle wastes like cigarette butts. For example, Vancouver launched a city-wide cigarette ash recycling program in 2013.
