Cigarette waste has become a serious worldwide litter and safety issue. Public and private regulations have forced smokers into small, designated areas, typically outdoors, that are often poorly furnished. Cigarette butts are extinguished on the ground or are blown there from receptacles that are unsuitable, inadequate, or improperly placed.
Rubbermaid's GroundsKeeper™ Cigarette Waste Collector can help combat the problem. It's architecturally styled to blend with commercial settings such as office buildings, healthcare facilities, and public beaches. The restricted opening shields cigarette butts from open view and from weather that can scatter them. It also discourages mixing ignitable trash with smoldering cigarettes and reduces oxygen flow for quick smothering of lit materials.
Smokers will find the Collector easy to use, while maintenance workers will find it easy to clean. The galvanized metal canister requires no sand (or tools to sift through it) and fewer cleanings than traditional ashtrays. The unit is Factory Mutual approved for fire safety.
Restricted opening shields cigarette butts from view, weather and flow of oxygen. Two-piece design makes cleaning quick and easy. Inner galvanized steel canister securely holds large quantities of cigarette waste. Constructed of smooth, injection-molded plastic that is rust-resistant and easy to clean. Steel base plate adds weight for stability and discourages theft. UV stabilizer has been added to the collector's plastic for maximum life in outdoor settings.

Very functional Review by Ford
Couldn't be easier to set up. Functional but unobtrusive. (Posted on 6/29/2008)
