Please Put Your Cigarette Butts in Plastic Cactus Receptacles

Everyone is reminded that smoking is prohibited in law school facilties or within 50 feet of law school buildings. This includes the courtyard and walkways between buildings.

If you do smoke outside the law school, please choose a spot outside areas nonsmokers must pass to enter or exit buildings.

This is more than an aesthetic concern: cigarette smoke can cause serious problems for people with allergies and other health issues.

In spite of rules prohibiting smoking, cigarette butts are commonly found on the grounds of the UF Law campus. To help alleviate this unsightly problem, plastic receptacles like the one pictured above have been placed near the various entrances to the school. Smokers who enter the campus with cigarettes are encourged to use the receptacles and help keep the campus clean.
