Cigarette butts are a real problem for communities. The main answer is of course the ashtray. As with the litter bin, extensive work has been done with administrators to achieve easy collection and maintenance.

The result is an aesthetic and functional street furnishing, perfectly adapted to its environment and constraints. To effectively deal with this problem on a city scale, however, the ashtray can not be the only answer. This is why, without preconceived ideas, Aréa has pushed thought further to invent the extinguisher which, by fixing itself on existing ashtrays, avoids the multiplication of furnishings. This polished stainless steel medallion is fixed on top of the litter bin and marked with a sign. The cigarettes, once extinguished on this unalterable and always clean surface, can be safely discarded into the litter bin.
