No smoking is allowed in the building. Effective August 25, 1997, the Smoking Policy prohibits smoking in any area of any State Office Building, including bathrooms, stairwells, and garages in accordance with M.G.L Chapter 270, section 22. This law supersedes Administrative Bulletin 87-1 promulgated by the Executive Office of Administration and Finance.

Recycling policy

Tenant agencies in the Springfield State Office Building are encouraged to collect all recyclable material for pickup by the recycling contractor. 

All agencies can recycle paper waste using the blue desk-side receptacles.

Posting policy

No posted material shall be affixed to walls, doors, or elevators. No political campaign materials shall be displayed or posted in the Building.

All posters/notices must be pre-approved by the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM) or his/her designee. If approved, posters/notices may be posted at a location determined by DCAMM. Failure to adhere to this procedure will result in the removal of posted material.

When permanent signs are needed, DCAMM will install them. Agencies may install signs with DCAMM's consent, provided they are consistent with other signs on the same floor and are ADA compliant.
