Littering by waste disposal operative

I’d be grateful if you could ask / remind your operatives not to drop their lit cigarette dog end outside my house. Just witnessed refuse collection operative walk from front of bin lorry to back and halfway down casually toss remains of lit cigarette but into edge of kerb as if littering isn’t an offence and highly offensive.

I had wondered where all the cigarette bits were coming from and now I have seen with my own eyes. Not only is this littering and subject to a fine but also the pollution from chemicals in cigarette buts is horrendous for the environment.
