Cigarette Butt Disposal

Posted By on December 9, 2022

Sadly, this is not the first time I’ve ever written about this topic, but I suppose as a High Rise Manager it is somewhat inevitable… Recently, I have again been contacted with a flurry of folks complaining that they regularly find cigarette butts and/or trash on their balconies due to residents above them not taking the time or being courteous enough to properly dispose of these items. More than one owner has sent me pictures of burnt and damaged furniture due to this type of thoughtlessness. Our Rules & Regulations strictly prohibit this type of behavior and if caught hearings are called and significant fines are levied.

Well, it’s Holiday time, and unfortunately I’m writing about this topic, but with the winds and weather, it is more critical than ever for folks to abide by the simple rules of never allowing anything, especially cigarette butts, to be blown or thrown from their balconies. Please help us with this small, neighborly act and take a moment to dispose of butts and trash properly. Thanks very much, and Happy Holidays…
