Take Care When Disposing Of Cigarettes Outside

Recent fires in Fairfax County have highlighted the danger of improperly discarded smoking materials. If you smoke outside, please do NOT throw cigarettes where they can easily catch fire! 

Do NOT throw cigarettes into bushes, plotted plants or landscaping, peat moss, dried grasses or mulch. 

Do dispose of them in a suitable ashtray or bucket with sand. Ensure designated outside smoking areas have an appropriate fireproof container, ashtray or bucket.
