Your waste is your responsibility. You can help protect our parks, beaches, waterways, and wildlife, and prevent fires by properly disposing of your cigarette butts in a waste receptacle, ashtray, or pocket ashtray, and by encouraging others to do the same.
Tobacco and cannabis smoking is prohibited in parks and beaches and in many public spaces, such as in transit shelters, customer service areas, and some plazas, as well as within 6 meters of a window, doorway, or air intake.
