Do Not Put Hot Ashes in Your Trash

Tis’ the season for burning fires! Now that fall is here and the cooler air is rolling in, many people are heading outdoors to sit around a camp fire or their fire pit. Penn Waste would like to remind everyone to please make sure there are NO hot ashes going into your trash! This is a hazard to our employees and everyone around our trucks. Ashes that are still hot can cause an entire trash load to go up in flames. This causes our drivers to risk their lives while attempting to discard their garabage load in the middle of the street or a parking lot so the entire truck does not catch on fire.

To prevent this from happening, please put all ashes in a cardboard box or paper bag BEFORE throwing them into your garbage. If the ashes are still hot, they will burn through the cardboard or paper, warning us in advance not to pick it up.

Remember, safety is always our number one priority! We appreciate your help with keeping our employees safe!
