They were handed out as part of a clean-up operation. The kids helped to pick up litter and were given the ashtray as a thank you gift.

One mother says its completely inappropriate to give a 14-year-old an ashtray.

The city says they’re meant to be given away and highlight the problem of cigarette butts left on the streets.
