Street-smart Ashtray / Outdoor smoking facility

Street-smart Ashtray
Street-smart Ashtray

Littering of cigarette butts and ash at outdoor smoking areas causes uncollected “third-hand smoke” particles to disperse freely and pose serious health threats to passers-by. Street-smart Ashtray is designed to maximise collection of cigarette butts and ash by configuring the entire smoking area floor into a super ashtray consisting of modular Geo-fibre collector units reinforced with aluminium frame. The cigarette butts and ash would glide through the non-stick honeycomb-structured polypropylene floor and be trapped by the removable, washable microfiber collector net below. Water content is released into soil or a french drain.
