A disgruntled home owner has posted an angry sign up after his neighbours repeatedly dropped cigarette butts off their balcony.

In a snap posted on Reddit, a poster could be seen taped to a notice board above a sandwich bag filled with “fag butts”.

it seemed he had collected all the plastic tab ends from the floor outside their apartment building.

The sign read: “Keep chucking fag butts off your balcony. I’ll dump the next lot outside your door. Get a bin!”

The poster, positing in the CasualUK forum, captioned the photo: “Well bloody said.”

And, it seems that hundreds of other Brits agree with the angry sentiment – and many fumed over cigarette littering in their area.

One person said: “I'm a smoker and I despise people who behave like this.”

To which another jokingly replied: “I'm an ex-smoker and I despise people who behave like this, but with more smugness.”

Another poster claimed: “There was a statistic a few years ago (keep in mind that smoking rates are falling year on year) that cigarette butts make up to 60% of all dropped litter in the UK.

“It's disgusting.”

According to government research, this figure is incorrect – cigarette ends actually make up one third of all litter in the UK and are found on 99% of town centre streets.

Amberol calculate in 2014 that an estimated 122 tonnes of butts, matchsticks and cigarette related litter is dropped every day in the UK.

Wow.

No wonder Reddit posters are getting riled up, another person commented: “I've got one of those trashy neighbours that insist on smoking on their front doorstep.

“Fag butts f***ing everywhere.”

“Pick them up and save them,” replied a prankster.

“Then wait until it's dark and post them through their letterbox.

“Whatever you do, don't leave a note which would give clues as to who you are. That would just be dumb.”

Another wrote: “Lucky you, mine smoke out their front door then chuck them in my garden.

“Then have the nerve to moan about me doing so.”

One poster had a handy suggestion.

They noted: “I used to smoke, and I was definitely guilty of dropping butts in the street, stamping them out, and thinking it was okay.

“Then my friend from Switzerland came over with one of these portable ashtrays, and was just boggled by the fact I was dropping my butts in the street.

“We need to normalise portable ash tray pouches.”

Hopefully this angry person’s neighbours will get an ashtray themselves soon!
