Wall or stand ashtray

The first parameter is to choose the type of installation: wall or floor. The ashtrays on foot are rather adapted to the places with strong passage and thus it is the autonomy which is sought.
Of course, their other strong point is being able to move. In addition some models combine two functions: trash and ashtray. Wall ashtrays are less bulky but generally have a lower autonomy. Here also some models combine the two functions of basket and ashtray.
The choice of materials is a parameter in the context of the weather resistance, the concept of vandalism but also the desired design if the frame in which the ashtray is placed is important.
Emptying the ashtray
The mode of emptying the tank of the outdoor ashtray is variable from one model to another. The mode of closing with lock or not is a criterion to take into account at the time of purchase.
