As more facilities become smoke-free, strategically placed smokers urns increase in importance.

Experts recommend selecting urns and shelters that are easy and convenient to use, providing signage directing smokers to the designated areas. In addition to smokers urns, facilities are advised to place waste and recycling bins in the area to keep trash at bay.

Since these areas are used throughout the day, smoking sections should be included in cleaning schedules. Doing so maintains a positive perception of the facility and reduces the amount of trash tracked into the building.
