Councillor John Hewitt, Hull City Council's portfolio holder for neigh-bourhoods and communities, said: "We want to encourage people to take more care when disposing of litter. It can be quite easy to forget that dropping cigarette ends is classed a littering, which is an offence.
"There are more than 4,100 litter bins across the city, so there is no excuse. If you don't dispose of your litter properly, you may receive a fixed penalty notice or face legal action."
Hull City Council carries out regular patrols looking for environmental offences such as littering, graffiti and dog fouling.
