Not sure how to dispose of ashes after using your fire pit? Follow these tips to ensure proper disposal of your hot ashes.
Allow ashes to cool in the area where you had the fire for several days. These areas are designed to contain their heat safely.
When it is time to dispose of ashes, test to ensure the hot ashes are cool by placing them in a cardboard box or paper bag before disposal. In this situation, never leave these ashes unattended until they are cool enough for disposal. If the ashes are too hot, they will begin to burn through the box or bag.
Transfer the cool ash to a plastic bag and then tie it shut. This will ensure any dust from the bagged ashes does not get into our employees’ eyes or lungs.
Do NOT put any ashes in a trash container. They should be left on the ground beside your trash container. By sitting them outside of the cart, we can confirm the ashes are NOT hot before placing them in the truck.
Never dispose of hot ashes with your yard waste material. By placing ashes with yard waste, such as tree trimmings and leaves, the potential for fires increase substantially.
Due to the Labor Day Holiday, all regular Penn Waste trash and recycling collections will be delayed one (1) day. Monday customers will be collected on Tuesday. Tuesday customers will be collected on Wednesday and so on for the remainder of the week through Saturday.
Due to the excessive heat forecasted for the remainder of the week, Penn Waste routes may be starting one hour early on your service day for the remainder of the week. Collection days affected include July 26, July 27 and July 28. If you are a customer scheduled to be collected on any of these days, please place your waste and recyclables curbside the evening prior to your collection to ensure that you are serviced on your collection day. The early start is for the safety of our employees that will be working in the heat. We appreciate your understanding.
