Ian Thorley, of Hammond House, Ridgway Road, Shelton, was seen by officers from Stoke-on-Trent City Council dropping the cigarette butt at the city's railway station in November last year.
The case was taken to court after Mr Thorley refused to pay an £80 on-the-spot fixed penalty notice for the offence.

A £40 million scheme to improve a major route through Staffordshire has now opened for public consultation.
The A50 Growth Corridor project aims to improve the connection between the East and West Midlands by tackling congestion along the busy main road at two traffic hotspots.
One of the projects for the A50, which runs from Stoke-on-Trent to Derby, will see the creation of a new junction to the west of Uttoxeter, to alleviate pressure caused by planned extra housing and a new business park.
The second project will include the removal of two roundabouts to reduce congestion, and the creation of a new junction to the east of Uttoxeter.
Staffordshire County Council's economic chief Mark Winnington encourage people to get involved in the consultation.
These two projects will support businesses and communities right along the A50 delivering growth, jobs and investment along the corridor linking the East and West Midlands.
Securing Government funding for these projects is excellent news for communities and businesses alike and will also cut congestion, reduce journey times and help improve safety on this busy trunk road.
I hope as many people as possible take the time to have their say on these exciting proposals.
