It has come to our attention that cigarette butts have been landing on residents' balconies and terraces, as well on the new 4th floor Terrace. This is a fire and safety hazard, as well as a risk to common areas and personal belongings. Improperly disposed ashes and butts can damage and burn patio furniture and other flammable objects, including the wooden deck, plants and furnishings on the new Terrace.
Please pay attention to the following:
1) If you smoke on your balcony, please use a fireproof container, preferably with a cover or small opening, to carefully collect ashes and butts. Once finished, please bring the container inside, as gusts of wind can easily disperse the contents. Never flick ashes or butts off the perimeter of your balcony.
2) Ensure all guests and staff (e.g. caregivers, construction workers, caterers and cleaners) are informed of and follow the instructions in point 1) above.
Please also refer to the letter dated April 19, 2010 on this topic, distributed to all owners and residents (copied below).
Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
