Another Salem County Township Bans Outdoor Smoking

Last Edited:

Salem County officials are continuing to do their part to create a safe and healthy environment for everyone in the community.

Earlier in July, Quinton Township became the eighth municipality in the South Jersey county to adopt an outdoor smoke-free recreation ordinance.

The new ordinance prohibits the use of all tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes and vaping devices in Quinton parks, recreation areas, and municipal building and vehicles.

Officials hope the new measure will help reduce the community's exposure to secondhand smoke, reduce litter, and help prevent accidental fires.
