Did you know Cape Town has a stompie hotline? The hotline is active 24 hours a day and the City says it can be an effective tool during Cape Town’s fire season. 

If you see someone tossing a lit cigarette butt aka a stompie, you can call 021 424 7715 and report the incident.

Try and have the following information when you call:
  • Information to identify the vehicle and its owner (e.g. registration, make, colour, etc.)
  • Time and location of the incident
  • Who chucked the stompie, the driver or a passenger?

The accused will receive a warning letter and if they’re found guilty, a fine of R1500.
