    Abstract
    Aim:
    This study examined effects of a feedback poster on inappropriate dumping of cigarettes.
    Methods:
    The number of inappropriately dumped cigarettes (dependent variable) was measured weekly at two smoking areas in a university campus from May to December 2012. The study employed an AB design: baseline (May to October) and intervention (November to December). In the intervention phase, a feedback poster that mentioned the number of cigarettes inappropriately dumped in the past three weeks was displayed at both smoking areas. This poster was updated weekly.
    Results:
    The number of inappropriately dumped cigarettes decreased in both smoking areas from the baseline to intervention phases.
    Conclusion:
    Appropriate dumping might be reinforced by feedback posters. This study is the first to provide evidence that a feedback poster is efficacious in reducing inappropriate dumping of cigarettes.
