“yellow useless part” or “useless yellow part”?

This may be a simple question but it has me confused. Is it “yellow useless part” or “useless yellow part” in the sentence below?

He threw the yellow useless part of cigarette.

By useless yellow part, I mean the part that remains after you are done smoking a cigarette i.e, cigarette butt.


According to the rules of adjective order at Ginger, quality (useless) comes before color (yellow), but how seriously this is supposed to be taken, I can only guess!
